The van pulled into the parking lot of Baltimore’s indoor Charm City Skatepark as water leaked into the van and puddles overflowing from gutters spilled into streets. The park was a maze of bowls, rails, ledges, gaps and hidden second-story rooms containing lengthy spine ramps; all managed by owner Jason, who gave us a thoughtful interview with his one-year-old daughter bouncing on his knee. We met up with Josh Katz (Youtube username: enminem) and then headed back to his parents’ house for photo and video editing, writing, eating and some sleep. The next afternoon we returned to Charm City for more interviews and ended the day with one more meal with Josh provided by his super friendly family.
