Categories:Around the Islands, News

The San Juan Islands are famous for sailing, fishing, crabbing, beautiful scenery, whales, great food and drink, fantastic restaurants, hotels and resorts…did we forget anything? Oh yes, epic skateboarders and talented skateboarding movie makers! Take a look at this trailer shot by Kyle Steneide, of Friday Harbor, and his crew.

Kyle Steneide, from Friday Harbor on the San Juan Islands is a skateboarder and film maker. His new movie “About Time” will be debuting in Seattle at the Historic University Theatre 5510 university way Seattle WA. There will be a 7pm and 9pm showing and tickets will be available to pre-book very soon.

Of course skatboarding is not a new thing in the San Juan Islands, with a skatepark located at the San Juan County Fairgrounds. The park has recently enjoyed the addition of a new quater pipe. The quarter pipe is twenty feet long, three and a half feet tall and located in the corner of the new skate park area closest to the parking lot and the family park. According to the IslandRec website this was made possible with thanks to local parents, The San Juan County Fair, The Gates Foundation and the Family Resource Center.

The skatepark on San Juan Island is open everyday from 8.00am to dusk everyday, and is a great way for kids, teenagers and even adults to get out and get active.
