On September 9th, 2011 Cresent Collective will host a special screening of WAYWARD SON – The Jordan Richter Story. WAYWARD SON – The Jordan Richter Story is the intimate story of professional skateboarder Jordan Richter and his rapid rise and disappearance from the sport of skateboarding. Jordan embraced the religion of Islam in the mid 90’s and out of what he felt was a religious obligation, quit professional competition. 15 years later he learns that skateboarding is not prohibited in Islam and making up for lost time, attempts a comeback.

Ok here's a little info if you were wondering who Jordan Richter is. He is a professional skateboarder from the late 80's; was the hot am for Santa Cruz (also Airwalk which i can think of at the moment) and then cemented his place in skateboarding history with the least watched part in the Blind "Video Days" directed by Spike Jonze. Later he joined up with the New Deal after Mark Gonzales and Jason Lee made their exits from Blind. After that he rode for Good Times Skateboards; then had a few tricks in the Children Of The Sun video and soon faded away from the public spotlight. Wanted to know more, come and watch the screening on 9th September at The Annexe gallery, Central Market; 8 - 11pm
