We were sad to hear the news this week that skateboard industry veteran Mark Waters passed away after a battle with COVID-19.
Mark had a long career in skateboarding, including working at companies such as Tum Yeto and Sole Technology, in addition to working for USA Skateboarding as the men’s team manager.
Most recently, he served as Executive Director of the International Association of Skateboard Companies (IASC).
Mark is survived by his wife, Claudine, and his son, Avery.
We asked Don Brown, the Sole Technology VP of Marketing who worked closely with Mark over the years, to tell us about Mark’s impact on the skate industry.
