Weather in the West Coast is somewhat stable for the most part of the year, making it an ideal environment for skateboarders who want to partake in the sport all year long. However, in the East Coast, the temperature can drop dramatically in winter, proving to be difficult to live, let alone go skateboarding. This is where the DIY mentality of many skateboarders kicked in, occupying relatively cheap warehouse spaces in Brooklyn. Inside, a variety of obstacles are erected from mini-ramps to bowls, pyramids to ledges, providing an original skate park for skaters to enjoy. Red Bull caught up with some key people in New York City about the history of indoor skateboarding in the Big Apple. Watch the full video underneath.
