How NYC Survived Skateboarding’s “Winter Blues” Episode 1

Winter 2014’s been gnarly for East Coast skateboarding. The Polar Vortex has pretty much been the hired mercenary of Mother Nature and it’s single-handedly shot down all hopes of outdoor action with its onslaught of powder and frigid temps. It’s been brutal. Really, really brutal.

But hell, #OnTheGrind knows that you can’t keep a good (or persistent) skater down. Crappy weather or not, we fucking live for this shit! So the plan was to go out and gather a few riders from a few local squads to get an intimate look into how everyone’s been able to cope with the unforgiving climate – how they feel about it and what they’ve done to survive it.

For our first episode, in a series of three, we linked up with 5BoroNYC pushers Jimmy McDonald and Danny Falla – two of the warmest and sincerest dudes you’ll ever meet – and sessioned with them at Homage Brooklyn’s indoor facility over in the Gowanus section of the borough.

Check out the video up top and get a glimpse of their “Winter Blues” mindset.
