The Midwest, Cincinnati around our crews of dudes, have obviously put out a lot of stoke in skating through the years. Doug Korfhagen (sp?) has been an Atlanta generational favorite since the mid 90's off of his Solid Brand video part. Dudes with names like Buddy Best, Chris Head, Stormy, and Matt Creasy have all once called Doug one of their favorite skaters. Everything he's been involved in has been great.
