Wayne and skateboarding is synonymous these days. Following his interesting court deposition, Wayne headed to New Orleans to open up the Trukstop skate park in the Lower 9th Ward. Nice to see Wayne do this for the community.
The park will be a gathering place where residents have been slow to return since Katrina hit seven years ago. Flooding pushed homes off their foundations, and many blocks remain vacant and overgrown by weeds.
Trukstop occupies a pre-Katrina building that survived the flooding. It was constructed using recycled materials and will be run using solar energy.
