Lance Mountain + Pat Ngoho: why art and creativity matter in skateboarding, now more than ever

Lance Mountain:

“That’s why we’re doing it here, and that’s why we’re very excited to be allowed to do it here this year especially. Skateboarding is always going to advance. I was part of the advancement, skaters after me were part of the advancement, these young skaters here at Dew Tour are part of the advancement, the Olympics will be part of the advancement. But as it advances, and the more people start being spectators of skateboarding rather than participants, the less people know and feel what it is outside of a spectated event and outside of a performance-based competition. It feels like an important moment to remember and celebrate the core of it, which is creativity.”
