Skogging team members exhibit daily habits of pushing switch to master the movement. Skogging long distances for speed and/or fun is typical of most team member’s expected activity. Switch push is key for a team member. Some team members can be grand fathered in by request. You guys know who you are. Just PM me with a short bio and picture and/or videos of your switch push.
Steven “High Kickn’” Meketa was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1972.
At the age of 13 Steven started skateboarding and over the next few years it became his number one passion. Street skating and freestyle were his initial favorites. Above all else Steven’s real thrills came from traveling miles and miles on his skateboard.
Health issues, such as colon cancer and stomach ulcers, brought Steven to Southern California where he was introduced to Chris Yandall and a brand new style of skateboarding. Pat von Brickner at The Grind Skate Shop in a local town of Oceanside introduced Steven to an interesting style of skateboard which was specifically designed for long distance. “CHA-CHING!” Steven thought. This new sound and style is called Skogging. Skogging is a disciplined style of skateboarding, instead of pushing with one leg as most skateboarders are used to; skogging incorporates both legs in a new way. Chris Yandall refers to it as Pedi-dexterity. Since that day Steven has left all of his other boards to get dusty on the racks, miles and miles have been clocked on his skogging board, hundreds of miles at a time. You can spot Steven cruising all around Northern San Diego on his bright yellow skogging board doing his “High Kick”. Steven’s health has improved dramatically and his once frail looking body has gained nothing but muscle. Skogging is not only Steven’s favorite pastime; it’s also his sole/soul transportation. Steven will be skogging until the day that God takes him home.
