RIP Mark Hubbard
« on: June 08, 2018, 11:24:31 PM »
This year keeps on taking, sad news.  Grew up skating parks grindline built, my view of skateboarding wouldnt be the same without all of the work he and his crew put in.
only in skateboarding is putting an adult in a position where they might have to actually work for their income "ruining their life"  ::)

Mark "Monk" Hubbard was our Anthony Bourdain.  He got to travel, live a free life, and instead of some tv show, he built temples for people to skate on.  With Sleestak, we had to deal with city people and tried to explain how it was for the best of the community.  Without F Bombs...that was tough.

As what is posted on the Orcas Island / Scott Stamnes park :  "there is no amount of good a person can do, as long as they do not take the credit for it".

Fucking bummed... i never met or skated with him but have stayed at his house with the vert ramp a few times. His family always took care of us. Skateboarding lost someone who gave it all...RIP MONK!!!!

Damn my favorite parks I've ever skated are Gridline parks, followed closely by Dreamland. Such a huge loss. RIP.

This is a real loss. I'm sorry to hear of anyone passing, and say what you want about his music, but the dude cared enough about skateboarding to build a skatepark in Israel. Hope the afterlife is pad free.

Judging by the comments above, surely you can see that plenty of people either knew him or had heard of him, so why bother even commenting? Guess you just wanna be edgy in this guys memorial thread. Cool contribution

 My home park is a grindline, lots of people are bummed on it because it's so transition oriented but it's made some damn good skaters out of the children. A large mark that will never be unmade. Rest in Power

People like Mark are the real heroes of skateboarding. We've lost a real good one.

Damn, talk about leaving your mark on the world.

Grindline parks are some of the gnarliest out there.
