I really like stories driven by an unforeseeable event: sometimes they are stories that in their own little way can change the world. So today I want to tell the story of Oliver Percovich, the founder of Skateistan.
Many sports become a philosophy, a way of life. But only a few are elevated to the ranks of a religion and their stars become cult figures. So it is with Hobie Alter, known to everybody as “Hobie”, just like his famous catamarans, who died in March.
