Skate Invasion: Jonathan Nuss Snowskating in Nunavut
Skate Slate contributor, Skate invader and longtime Toronto Board Meeting Organizer Jonathan Nuss is spending some time in the North of Canada way up in Nunavut. Don’t think because he’s literally in a frozen, and mostly dark, frontier right now that he’s lost his spirit, dropped off his skating, or slowed his stoke spreading.
Nuss recently released a super fun snowskate edit. With nowhere to skate on wheels, he’s made the most of his environment and creativity to keep having fun. Landyachtz and Longboard Haven helped him get a board setup and he immediately got to shredding. Dealing with all kinds of change in his life, Nuss used his snowskate to get outside, let loose and not let it get the best of him. As a result, he’s connected with his local community more quickly and is exposing everyone to a new way to get outside and have some fun during Winter. It seems the Skate Invader has even caught the attention of the local media and made the news. Read more here.
I like promoting physical activity outside, it’s a positive thing for people to do. It helps relieve stress, form friendships and build community among youth who are looking for new things to do. – Jonathan Nuss, nunatsiaqonline.ca
We couldn’t be more stoked to hear he’s having fun and we’ll be looking to catch up with him for an interview to find out how the whole Nunavut invasion is going overall.
