Former H-Street Pro Skater Ron Allen & ArtByTai interview on DOD45 (Drawing Over Discussions Episode 8)

DOD45 - ArtByTai's Drawing Over Discussions 45 Minutes With a Special Guest

On this episode of DOD45 Tai & Adrienne sit down with someone Tai has looked up to since his early days of skateboarding in the late 1980s. Legendary pro skater & first black sponsored skater, formerly of the original H-Street team, Ron Allen.  Though he didn't necessarily know it at the time, Ron Allen paved the way for people of color in the world of skateboarding. By doing what he loved, Ron helped skateboarding become the diverse sport we recognize today, which BTW makes its debut in the 2021 summer Olympics.   Tai & Ron get right into the thick of it and talk about everything from music, to taking advantage of street skating without the presence of security guards during the pandemic, to continuing to be a pro skater well into his late 50s, as well as discussing some of the racism Ron faced as a skater.    Ron talks about how he had to work off his bills for Thrasher Magazine, how being in cheer taught him to be more professional as a pro skater and how he was forced to choose between having dreadlocks or continuing cheer in college. The two also discuss the difference between street skating vs. skate park riding and also competing against yourself. Ron Allen recently relaunched his skateboard company American Dream and gets into why it's essential to support and be supported by your local skate shops.   Be sure to frequent your local skate shop and while you're there look for or request the American Dream Inc brand to show your love to Ron and the good work he's doing with American Dream.    You can follow him on instagram @RonAllenSk8 and his @MCIntellegence Instagram page for upcoming show information.   Prints of the Ron Allen Cat are available at: https://artbytai.com/products/RAllen (all proceeds will go to purchases from Ron Allen ♻️)   Pertinent links from the episode: Ride Channel H-Street Skateboards official American Dream Inc on Insta Become an ArtByTai collector Theme music by Nalei from her debut album "13" - https://open.spotify.com/album/0BUFr5... --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/artbytai/support
