42. Tennessee: Comfort
Since 2009, Comfort has been bringing the scene together, sponsoring a team, and supporting local video projects and events. As members of the Chattanooga Skatepark Project they, along with other community members, advocate for skateparks throughout the city. Part of that advocacy is hosting the annual Battle At The Bend contest to raise money and awareness for Chattanooga’s need for a free, high quality, public skatepark.
Every April, Comfort also hosts a basement sale with their team riders acting as vendors, offering a chance for local skaters to get their hands on awesome gear for cheap.
