The one and only Burnside Skatepark made it to 24, with much new development coming to the city of Portland, the future of the park was looking grim there for a second, but luckily the new high rise going in is cool with the park staying and being good neighbors. The park will still need more improvements over the next year including lights and permanent bathrooms. Huge thanks to everyone that volunteered with maintenance efforts this year and all the bands that killed it. See you again next year!

For most of the Jews in Israel, Yom Kippur is the most solemn religious fast of the Jewish year. There are many “Don’t” customs regarding this day such as – don’t eat, don’t turn on electricity… don’t drive, etc. For 24 hours you will not see a single car in many parts of the country. This very unique day transforms Israel into a huge playground for any kind of transportation without an engine – especially a skateboard. Just try to imagine a big metropolis without buses cars, trucks or trains. Huge spans of roadway and freeways, free of vehicular traffic, waiting to be skated upon.
Filmmaker Amit Schwachter captures some of these rare moments with his good friend and skater Tamuz Rachman and this short film is the result.
