TOMMY CUBA: I don’t even like watching the news or what’s going on. I don’t know what’s going on. I keep it right here on this little cusp.

This is a place called Shorty’s. Me and like forty of my friends just started building. This what I like, this is where I wanna be. I like what we do here. Everyone has so much fucking heart.

Shorty’s did a lot for me… and a lot for all of us.


His hands built a skate park. His spirit built a community.
