If skateboards are your thing, you have a new place to thrash in San Francisco: the new Balboa Skate Park. And that brings us to another installment of our community storytelling project, Hear Here. KALW's Ben Trefny swung by the Balboa Skate Park, before its official opening, to meet some of the skaters there. He met edn Bowater-Skelly, Mario Mancini, Sirdenzel Lumsey, and Vivan Nguyen there.
