Mark Waters, a lifelong skater, musician and great friend of SkateDaily.net is putting together a fundraising effort to create a new Unit B community through the Indiegogo campaign online. The goal is to reopen a music/skate/art venue in Central Orange County, CA. Through the support of many artists and photographers such as Skin Phillips, Ed Templeton, Dave Swift, Michael Burnett, Neil Blender, Atiba Jefferson, Joe Brook, Grant Brittain and others, Mark and his crew are looking to rebuild this DIY creative space, as underground and legit.
