Paul Schmitt's Create a Skate Program
Posted on Thursday, February 1, 2007 by Rob
I was recently at Tampa Bay Tech High School. If you’re from Tampa, you know about the 10 stair rail there. On the day I went, Paul Schmitt and Tosh Townend were there for the Create a Skate program. It’s a program that teaches high school students all about how a skateboard is created, with a very hands on approach. Students make their own boards and get to keep them after the process. If high school was that interesting when I was going, I would have gotten a lot less sleep in class.
Check out a few photos I took of Tosh who did a one man demo as part of the program for all the students in the class. A few newspapers picked up the story, also. Those clippings are below.
