A really interesting commentary on city community attitudes and modern life. I hope they don't go ahead and make the city less people friendly, since as Bill Bryson said, after all cities are made for people.
Skateboarders are being driven from Melbourne's Lincoln Square after community complaints. But skaters are citizens too, and with obesity on the rise, their activities should be encouraged.

If you are looking for a great story for 2016 it really couldn't get cooler than this: On impulse you make a deserving bid for a totally unique, one off, low brow art skate deck (1) by a young Australian designer who did the work for free so your money goes straight to supporting skate, art and education projects for children in places like Kabul or Cambodia. To places where girls can't ride bikes but they can ride skateboards (2). The story gets better depending on how you want to end it: Maybe you put on those big colored wheels that you always wanted and ride it down your favorite street with your kid propped between your legs. Maybe it joins your collection (3), or you give it to your grandmother, or you just hold it to the tune of an early hit by Faith No More (4). It's going to be cool no matter what.

This is a really neat effort auctioning decks designed by artists and designers in support of the charity Skateistan http://skateistan.org/ which uses skateboarding as a way to reach out to youth in some challenging places.

The deck designs tackle contemporary social issues and were selected from many entries.

They are being auctioned on instagram

It ends 2PM GMT+10 Saturday, or 8PM Friday MTV time.
