I was lucky enough to be invited to opening of "THE STOKE" at MOB last night
Lots of old faces, amazing exhibition and great music at the bar upstairs.... as someone said to me, the event was like the high school reunion that we never had.
Massive congrads to Shawn O'Connor, Andy Mackenzie, the Museum of Brisbane and all involved!

The Stoke is an all access pass to Brisbane skateboarding history and culture for everyone – the uninitiated, hardcore skateboarders, museum lovers, design aficionados, extreme sports heads and fans of pop-culture.
The Stoke also explores the intersection of physical and artistic expression that defines the pursuit of skateboarding and the camaraderie that unites Brisbane skateboarders from all walks of life from the 1960s to today.
A highlight of the exhibition is a replica bowl, inspired by the legendary Moorooka Skate Shed, which will come alive with demonstrations and workshops from Brisbane’s skateboarding community.
Discover the meaning of ‘the stoke’ as MoB investigates the enduring culture of skateboarding in Brisbane - its people, legends and stories.
