Pushing Boarders was skateboardings first academic panel discussions held in London in early June with some of skateboardings “smrtest” journalists, culture builders, and even the odd pro/ex-pro or two. Topics included diversity, the challenges of writing about it, gender-identity, building skate-friendly cities, and more.
