Introducing Arbor’s new Whiskey Skate Team and the Project they’ve built to highlight the level of skating coming out of Venice today.
Living in the cracks behind the hype of today’s Venice, there is still a kid who started with nothing and has given everything to a life built on skating. Pushing past the hordes of tourists, the transplanted wealth, the performers, the hipsters, the valet class – past the muck, the grime, and the grease – you’ll find a core layer of youth, skating hard on and off the grid. For Arbor, they’re helping hold down skating’s street legacy, with talent that burns like that first pull off granddad’s bourbon. These individuals are making their mark with a distilled set of tricks crafted away from the limelight in the broken alleys, forgotten infrastructure, and public parks of our distracted, overly plugged-in world. The Whiskey Project is for them – the best young skaters from in-and-around Venice. A project they created, they run, and they front. A place to tell their stories, highlight their lines, and play their part in showing what skating’s roots were, are, and will always be. Raise a glass and enjoy The Whiskey Project.
