All of the skateboarders in St. Cloud, Minnesota and the surrounding area are tipping their hats and thanking Austin Lee this week, all of his hard work paid off and the city had the grand opening of their new skate plaza this weekend. A few years back, Austin approached the mayor and asked about getting a skate plaza for St Cloud. From there, Austin did his research and has had a large hand in the skate plaza becoming a reality. With Austin, the city of St. Cloud, Kanten Russell with ASD, and donaters, the skatepark officially opened yesterday in the snow. Kellen James, Marius Syvanen, and Tyler Surrey made the trip out to St Cloud for the opening, and got a sesh in the day before the snow started falling. Check out some of the ripping that went down in the video below, and check out Austin and the skate plaza’s story here.
