Where is skateboarding headed?

What is the future of skateboarding?. Where is the sport headed. The Olympic’s? YES, but do you ever wonder the real future of the sport? Are kids still skating theses days? When your work and live in something you need to sometimes take a step back and re evaluate or at least observe. When we have the pleasure to to just skate and enjoy ourselves we don’t need to worry or even care about the direct as a whole. I mean after all skateboarding is like water ever flowing and changing.

FunBox Skateboard Distribution although heavy into longboards on the Website is deeply rooted in street Skateboarding. Back in the 80’s (I am old lol) like every kid I had a dream to become a pro skateboarder. Although very different back then I knew that if I could not make it as a pro I was going to work in skateboarding some way or some how. I started my first “skateshop” when I was 13 or 14 years old called Dan’s Decks and I went to the Ocean City MD trade show to check it all out. I really wanted to be able to offer affordable skateboards to the homies and get stuff on the cheap. Funny because now that I think about it that is what Funbox does and seriously I just put that together right now. wow!
