Devin Satterfield, an Oakland cultural affairs commissioner and development coordinator for nonprofit Oakland Artists, Inc, took to his rooftop recently to interview Hustle Skateboard founder Jamie Harris. Here, Harris, 29, gives the scoop on his burgeoning company (whose Web site kicks ass -take your pick of five background beats to browse to), the latest skatepark development plans for Oakland (West Oakland’s Bordertown project may still be ensnared in red tape, but check out what’s allegedly happening downtown) and why he thinks the city ought to invest in arts programs for kids � and boxing rings.
