Jeggi tells it like it is: Exploring your city intertwined with physical exertion
Finding the Spot
What I enjoy most about skateboarding is the way that it changes one’s perspective of their environment. When you’re traveling on a skateboard, going from spot to spot; suddenly the city, from basic things like a sewer cover to architectural masterpieces, gain another purpose. The basic definition of a bench changes and, suddenly, it’s no longer a place for those walking past to sit down and rest or pass the time, it’s an object that the skater uses to express themselves; to express the fluidity of motion that’s inherent in the the roll up, the trick, and the roll away. Skateboarding is wonderful because it brings recognition to parts of a city—art and architecture—that people pass by everyday on their way to work or a date or something else in the vortex of appointments that often take up so much of our life.
