You might not know his name, but you’ve certainly seen his product. Sad news this morning that Larry Stevenson, the man who first mass produced skateboards, has passed away.

But where is the industry today, thanks to the developments of Stevenson?

Here to talk to use about the state of skateboarding in today’s Mid-day Extra is Michael Brooke, publisher of Concrete Wave magazine.
