Welcome back! Thanks for joining us for the last Comacan Questions interview of 2023, we are proud to have shared so many great interviews with artists, brands, skateboarders and all-around great people throughout the year and we are looking forward to hopefully expanding upon this list next year. With all of that being said we are stoked to share an interview with a friendly face behind the scenes in the Canadian skateboarding scene, our friend Kevin Page from SBC Skateboard Magazine.
What does skateboarding mean to you?
Skateboarding means a lot to me since that I have been lucky enough to work in the industry of the activity, I love for most of my life.
What does skateboarding mean to SBC?
What skateboarding means to SBC is a place where skateboarding can be represented forever in print form of many famous, spots, local talent, and photographers from coast to coast. It is a name that has represented Canadian skateboard history for 23 years and counting.
How does SBC highlight Canadian skateboarding?
SBC highlights Canadian skateboarding from coast to coast from the grassroots level right up to our Canadian pros. This is represented in our print magazine, website, and social media channels.
What is your role with SBC?
My role at SBC is Account Director.
In today’s digital age, what does it mean to you personally to keep physical copies of magazines alive?
I feel like in the digital age of skateboarding posts it does not show the relationship between skater and photographer the same as a physical magazine which lives forever.
Is there anything you’d like to see more of in the Canadian skateboard scene?
Would love to see another pro contest at the level of Slam City Jam to return to Canada and more demo tours across the country.
How did you come to work at a skateboard magazine?
I came to work at SBC Skateboard from years of working in the industry from the retail level to working at the distributor level, shoe brands and finally in media.
Anyone you’d like to thank?
I would like to thank Dan Opyc. Without Dan I would have never had my first opportunity working in the skate world and we are still close friends to this day.
