Skateboarders from the 1980s have grow up to find themselves running some major organizations — like the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC. The once outsider sport has become a recognized part of American culture and was celebrated at the weeklong Finding a Line: Skateboarding, Music and Media festival. Solstik DJed a three-hour set — then spent time finding lines on the ramps and capturing digital photo media.
