MI DH exists as a place for ambassadors to various regional scenes. To be in the group, one should demonstrate commitment to refining their craft, teaching their craft, creating/attending events, wearing safety gear, and finding/keeping spots (including building rapport with neighbors/locals/police.) These individuals should be leaders in their respective scenes, be it regional, city, or university.
Skill level is trumped by personality and dynamism every time. MI DH is not meant to be an elite group of pretentious skaters. Instead it is a group dedicated to progressing the skill levels of all skaters, and to incentivize responsible and sustainable behavior within the skateboarding community.
