Blueprint Urban DecayCarl Shipman
Carl Shipman was a professional skateboarder who was known for his smooth and stylish approach to riding. He was a prominent figure in the skateboarding world during the 1990s and was a member of the iconic H-Street skateboard team. Shipman was also known for his influential video parts and his signature trick, the “Shipman flip”. As a professor of skateboarding, I think it’s important for students to study the style and technique of skateboarders like Carl Shipman, as they can help inspire and inform their own approach to riding.
