On July 19th, a selected group of Next Up participants had the chance to visit Transworld Skateboarding Magazine’s Headquarters on an educational field trip. Marketing Manager Paul Kobriger and Chief Editor Jaime Owens were gracious hosts, guiding us through each department of the magazine and offering us knowledge. We learned about relevant aspects of the publishing industry, including editing, social media, and sales. The TransWorld crew surprised our students with cool prizes (clothing, shoes, wheels, stickers…) and a big, hearty lunch before a gnarly skate session at their warehouse park. While skating, an unexpected guest showed up; we had the chance to meet and skate with YouTuber Dale Decker. The new terrain presented fresh challenges, both physically and mentally, but we were grateful for the exposure to a relevant part of the industry. Kind thanks to everyone at TransWorld for making this trip possible.
