“For the past year and a half or so I’ve been a part of the Portland Parks and Recreation Program. I’ve been instructing some summer BMX classes and running the after school skate/BMX program at Parkrose High School. That’s right… High school! Parkrose has put forth the effort to allow kids to skate and bike on school grounds. It’s a real awesome gig. Basically I ride my bike and skateboard and hang with the future of America. When the BMX kids need some trick tips I’m there for them. The skate guys? Well I’m pretty much learning right along with them and there are a few that kill it. Those guys just come and shred while I’m asking them for help. The beginner skate kids get stoked to learn something before I do. So whatever works. It’s just cool that everyone has a fun time. Anyways, that’s a brief overview of the program. I think it’s rad that the school has started doing this. I would have been into it when I was in high school and I’m sure many feel the same. I’ve done similar work back home in Colorado and I know of others in the same field, so maybe this stuff is catching on. It’s a good feeling being part of a program that’s maybe keeping some of our alternative minded kids (like myself of course) motivated and stoked to keep striving for something out there.” — Roman Tencza
