Now the creative community is revitalizing their city and bringing new energy to downtown life. Levi’s Skateboarding teamed up with locals to help build a DIY skate spot, and will return to Detroit in 2017 to partner on the build of a new skate park.
“Hey Mark, what should we do to surprise Ronnie with his boards?” … “Let’s go to an archery range, it’ll be fun!” With that, the plan was set. The Krooked Team, along with Ronnie Sandoval’s friends and family, met up at the local archery range to surprise Ronnie with his pro board.
