A Day in the Life….

Owen Nieder @ Pier Park

Each year about this time, Portland becomes the epicenter of planetary skateboarding activity. The attraction is anchored around the annual Oregon Trifecta followed by the Dew Tour, not to mention all the great skateparks and a city that embraces skateboarding. That brings us to Owen Nieder, a skater that takes full advantage of the skate surroundings while visiting our fine city. One of his favorite spots to skate is Pier Park. Check out Owen sampling one of Portland’s skatepark gems after the turn.
