Maty’s Corner Issue # 2 Musings From Maty What happened to skateboarding? I mean really. How did we go from a bunch of dangerous half psycho punk rockers to these wanna be gang bangers who don’t respect shit!?! I got into skate boarding and punk rock when I was 15. I lived in a mountain town with no park. So we made our own stuff to hit and made the surrounding environs suit us! Man, we had some gnarly bails.
