As fans will already be aware, Skateboarder magazine has announced the discontinuation of its publication. Founded in 1964 in California, the magazine has been a mainstay in skateboarding for over four decades, literally charting the evolution of the sport and culture. In this video, Norb Garrett, Senior Vice President & Group Publisher of Grind Media speaks about the decision that was made to pull the plug on Skateboarder and gives some insights on what led to this decision as well as a little look into the future. Skateboarder will be discontinued as of October 15, 2013. RIP.
