Shelter Serra skating bowl at Chelsea Piers skate park

Twins Shelter and Ivory Serra were born in Bolinas 35 or so years ago and now live in NYC. (They’re sons of my longtime friend Tony Serra.) I hang out with them a bit every time I go to New York. When I was there for the book convention in late May, we went down to the new skate park on the Hudson. I got Shelter to strap my G0Pro Helmet Hero video camera onto his helmet as he made one round around the park and into and out of the bowl. Hang on!

About Lloyd Kahn

He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
