The streets of Milwaukee are the skateboarder’s urban playground. Stairs and handrails are normally seen as a necessary piece of architecture but to skateboarders doing a trick down it can be the final banger for a video part. The rough ground can gash the palms of any innocent skateboarder mistakenly hitting a single pebble. It takes work to skateboard well; it is even harder to skate the streets of Milwaukee well. The ground is rugged and the spots are far and few.
With the inverse rate of age to the length of a professional skateboard career, Rob Owens is the epitome of this.
