Skate Dog Studios presents: Skate It Forward

It's Sunday night, the boys are piled on the couch with me and I think it's about time I talk about my newest adventure...Skate It Forward.

Skate It Forward is a project I'm working on to highlight skateboarding and its riders in a positive way by helping out the community through paying it forward (Skate It Forward).  The way it works is simple, if a person is under 18 years old and comes up with a plan to help your community in some way either through volunteering, cleaning up the environment, donating, anything they think would be a worth while project and keeps their grades up in school, I will provide that person free decks to ride.  When the decks are broken in, I'll take them back, exchange it for a new one, and make the old deck into a recycled feeder...pretty easy right?

Below are some images of my first Skate It Forward recycled feeder

This GIRL skateboard was skated by a youth from Ogden, NC who is Skating it Forward by helping keep the area around the Skate Barn, an indoor skate park in Hampstead, NC clean (  He makes sure to keep his grades up in school and takes time out on the weekends to pick up trash around one of his favorite places to skate, keeping it nice for everyone else who skates there.

In the weeks to come, I'll be highlighting more riders and what they are doing to help the community, pretty exciting stuff!

If you or anyone else you know is interested in becoming part of Skate It Forward, either through skating, donating boards, or just helping me make Skate It Forward bigger and better, please don't hesitate to call (910) 376-2619 or email me @ big thanks ahead of time:)
