Cold snaps

Skateboarding and warm weather were made for each other. Nothing beats a great session outdoors in a T-shirt and jeans. But while so much of our ideals about skateboarding is wrapped up in the Southern California dream of endless summer, skating carries on all over the world in places where the weather isn't always so nice. Contrary to popular belief, cold temps do not mean that skaters on the East Coast and Midwest curl up and wait for spring. Die-hards are getting it done out there no matter what the weatherman says.
