“SKATERS BY THEIR VERY NATURE ARE URBAN GUERILLAS: THEY MAKE EVERYDAY USE OF THE USELESS ARTIFACTS OF THE TECHNOLOGICAL BURDEN, AND EMPLOY THE HANDIWORK OF THE GOVERNMENT / CORPORATE STRUCTURE IN A THOUSAND WAYS THAT THE ORIGINAL ARCHITECTS COULD NEVER DREAM OF.” – C.R. STECYK III 1976
For almost 50 years as an artist, writer, photojournalist, and filmmaker, C.R. Stecyk III has been transforming the DNA of surf, skate, and snowboarding. His contributions have altered the evolutionary path of the art, attitude, and outlook that define the culture. He is considered by most to be the godfather of both the place and perspective that is DogTown – Arbor’s hometown, primordial lineage, and proving ground. It’s hard to express how proud we are to be collaborating with this multimedia force and gonzo soothsayer of what was, is, and yet may be within “aspects of slide.”
