About Us


Make Life Skate Life is a 100% 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 IndiaBolivia,  Jordan, Myanmar, EthiopiaNepal, and Morocco 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.

We build skateparks because we are skateboarders and building skateparks is a tangible way to promote skateboarding

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

Arne Hillerns - Germany - M.A. Social Science - arne@makelifeskatelife.org

"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."


Jon Chaconas - United States - M.S. Mechanical Engineering - jon@makelifeskatelife.org

"It's awesome to be able to partner with local skateboarders and city governments to create skateparks for their communities, and to see the exponential impact that follows."

Kali Rubaii  - United States - M.A. Cultural Anthropology - kali@makelifeskatelife.org

"It is an honor to contribute to children's kinetic engagement with the world around them. 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."
