Longtime lurker, first-time poster here.

I've been writing this newsletter for a little while now and thought some Pals might enjoy it: https://colenowicki.substack.com/

It's mostly musings on recent skateboarding-related happenings. I try not to write about Cariuma too often, but sometimes it's unavoidable. Apologies in advance.

Thanks!

Loved it, especially the essay about your history with the St. Anthony Church Hubba.
I've been seriously considering trying out creative writing about skateboarding ever since I read Kyle Beachy's book.
It's so refreshing to see other people doing it; this stuff definitely provides much-needed inspiration and a nip in the bud.
Keep it up and thanks for sharing.

Thanks for reading and for the kind words! Beachy's book is excellent and definitely an inspiration over here, too. Hell yah! Would be stoked to read whatever you come up with.

Usually post these on Fridays, but this one is SOTY-centric and Thrasher just spoiled it and I don't want to revise:

Good stuff, enjoyed it all so far. More people writing good stuff about skateboarding is the best trend. Been doing the same for a bit with @essay_mag.
