A Cleveland teacher and her husband are working to keep kids off of the streets, through skateboarding.

“I’ve been a passionate Skateboarder for 34 years now,”

For Tri-Star Skateshop co-owner, Sam Snellenberger, skateboarding is everything.

“It’s a creative outlet where you get exercise. It’s pretty neat because it doesn’t matter if you don’t have money. It doesn’t matter what color you are. It doesn’t matter what gender you are. Everyone is accepted equally,” said Sam.

Sam and his wife Shelly both own and run one of Cleveland’s best kept secrets. A skateshop, a skatepark and skateboard history museum and Art Gallery all under one roof known as Tri Star Skateboards.

“I don’t think too many people know about tri star. I think by hanging artwork and having other things in here lets people want to come to see what it’s about,” said Tri Star Skateboards co-owner, Shelly Snellenberg
