Citizens Instigating Anarchy (C.I.A.)
Located in the foothills of Appalachia is Skatopia, an 88-acre skateboarding farm, owned and operated by professional skateboarder Brewce Martin and his son Brandon.
Serving as a pilgrimage point for skateboarders around the world, many also know this unique farm for its chaos. Though the chaos is often mistaken for anarchy, this is not true; anarchy is not a rebellious, destroy everything, 'fuck the police' mentality. Skatopia is about living free. Its visitors and residents are seeking a place to get away from the ‘normal’ expectations of society, coming to skateboard, playing music, party, and express themselves freely.
