This statement may sound ridiculous, but we wouldn’t print it if we didn’t think it was true: Skateboarding has always been a guide to what’s cool in the world. Since the early days of street skating, each generation of skateboarders has unwittingly educated the tastes and fashions of the next generation. Growing up they were like our collective big brothers and sisters, putting us on to what had some flavor and what sort of sucked.
In that spirit, we’re proud to announce One Sheet – a place where skaters and friends can recommend music, movies and hobbies for us all to check out. Think of it as a better version of our now dead-and-buried Office Picks feature we were running a while back.
To launch the series we hit up Mason Silva, who recently made headlines with his magic fakie flip and released a part with HUF. For a guy we haven’t heard talk too much, we were excited to get some recommendations and test his doodling ability.
