Tim at Such Luck has been documenting Chicago skateboarding for quite a while now--making zines, cool things, and a video series (called Farecard) that airs on public access TV. (We think that's brilliant.)
Take a look at his latest blog post in which you can view the most recent Farecard installment. Keep up the good work, Tim!

The fine folks at Low Budget made this amazing board honoring Hood and his artwork. Thank you so much for this! Contact them if you would like to have one, and there are only a few left of our Hood memorial boards at Infinity if you would like one of those as well. -Worful

Our friend John Hood passed away in October 2014, and not one day has passed that we haven’t thought about him.
John had Type 1 (juvenile) diabetes; it’s something he contended with for most of his 30 years. Several months before he died, he expressed interest in doing a benefit board for diabetes research, asked us for contacts at the woodshop we use and for other info about getting boards pressed.
That board never came to fruition, but as a way of honoring our friend, all net proceeds from the sale of Hood’s memorial board will go to diabetes research in his name.
Infinity Skateshop has graciously agreed to accept donations for the boards. We cannot thank Jason and his staff enough.
Please join us in remembering our departed friend, and in helping find a cure for juvenile diabetes.
