About Make Life Skate Life
We are a volunteer-run non-profit organization that works with local skateboarding communities around the world to create free of charge, community-built concrete skateparks. The skatepark projects we have completed in India, Bolivia, Jordan, Myanmar, Ethiopia, and Nepal have been successful through local community involvement from start to finish, providing local skateboarders with the tools, materials, knowledge, and inspiration to create their own projects.
Construction of skateparks is led by professional skatepark builders who create world-class skateparks and share their knowledge in the art of skatepark construction with skateboarding communities around the world. All of our skatepark projects remain sustainable through the establishment of free of charge on-site skateboarding and safety equipment loaner systems, run by local partner organizations, allowing all children free access to skateboarding regardless of economic standing.
BOARD OF Directors
'After the success of the Holystoked Skatepark in 2013, I wanted to create an organization that would enable the realization of similar projects around the world and help people make connections through skateboarding.'
'Through our projects, local skateboarders learn from an international community how to create skateable spaces themselves, and build community through skateboarding.'
'By building their own skate parks, flying through the air doing tricks, taking care of their equipment and each other, children become masters of their universe in a world razed by adults.'
LOCAL Project Coordinators
'It's incredible to be able to introduce kids to skateboarding and change their lives the way skateboarding changed mine.'
'Ever since working on the first Make Life Skate Life project in India, I have been convinced of the amazing influence skateparks can have on a community.'
'We had a pretty big vision for the future of skateboarding in La Paz, and with the help of Make Life Skate Life we exceeded it. Now our vision just keeps growing.'
