Skate Culture at SMS, Part 2

One year after Part 1, have skating trends shifted?
A year ago, Diego Duran and I wrote an article about SMS skate culture for the Grizzly Gazette. It became the most popular article on the whole site. Over the past weeks, I have interviewed some more skaters as Part II of our investigation of skate culture at SMS. This time, I spoke with Noah Biticon, Angel Zuniga, Jesus Espinoza, and Nicko Cunan. Here’s what they have shared.
