Marshall Stack Reid is considered the Grandfather of Seattle Skateboarding. For over 30 years he’s organized skate competitions, started skate companies and has been an outspoken activist for the skateboarding community. On today’s episode, Marshall and I discuss what it was like growing up in Seattle in the 80’s as a skater. The rise and fall of the legendary Sound and the Fury skate competition in Magnuson Park and how the skateboarding industry has seen a massive shift in culture due to technology. But looking out for Seattle’s future skate scene doesn't come without a few fights with the city. Sit back and enjoy one of my favorite interviews to date with the grandfather of Seattle skateboarding.
Marshall is the Manager of All Together Skatepark on Stone Way.
