Work in Skateboarding

workinskateboarding

 

"Work in skateboarding is an educational video website that shows the diversity of jobs in skateboarding, their accessibility and how similar roles can apply to other sport industries.

It’s going to be a resource for kids who are beginning to plan their career paths and are unaware of all the different job options within skateboarding.

The main goal of the website is to invest in the next generation of skateboarding, nurturing their growth and creativity and supplying them with information they can use to become a part of the industry." - Samantha Chami

This awesome idea and resource still needs help becoming a reality, for more info and ways you can help visit indiegogo.com/workinskateboardingwebsite.

Mimi Knoop in Method Soap Commercial


 

Check out this Method Soap commercial Mimi Knoop was recently in skating a sink full of bubbles (1:35)! 

"About a month ago I skated in a commercial for Method Soap up in Oakland, CA. The set was trippy and cool- in fact, it seemed like something straight out of Alice and Wonderland. I skated in a giant “sink” (aka mini-ramp) filled with over 2,000 balloons. Other parts of the set included a giant sponge/trampoline, a huge brite lite made out of handwash bottles, and a marching band in their underwear." - Visit for full story www.mimi-knoop.com for behind the scene photos.
