In this episode
Skate and Create explores the strange hybrid of skateboarding and creativity.
In part one of the first episode they explore the fundamental basics of this connection, speaking to skate/music/film icons such as Tony Hawk, Thurston Moore, Jason Lee, Shepard Fairey and others.
The second half gets into the subject of “outsiderness” and how both skateboarders and artists find a surrogate family based on their mutual alienation.
