Did y’all see the blog in the Portland Mercury about the PROPOSED BANNING OF PARTS OF THE ZOOBOMB TO SKATEBOARDERS?! Above is the map that details the streets in the West Hills that will be closed to skating (not biking, mind you!) if the bill passes.
We can’t speak for everyone but personally we feel like zoobombing is a rich part of the Portland skate tradition and we hate to see it go due to what’s perceived as a “safety issue” but might be more accurately described as a rich minority not wanting the types of peeps associated with skateboarding rolling through their neighborhoods on the daily. Also, as a whole, skateboarders have more control than people understand. We can stop and steer and stuff. What about a comprimise? A skate lane? What do YOU think?
