Holystoked Skatepark

- Bangalore, India -

 

In 2013, Make Life Skate Life initiated the construction of the Holystoked Skatepark, India's first free of charge public skatepark. The focus of the project was to share the art of skatepark construction with Bangalore based skateboarding collective, Holystoked. Since completion of the project, Holystoked has completed over a dozen skatepark projects of their own around the country, helping to make skateboarding accessible to thousands of Indian youth.

We joined the Holystoked skateboarding crew from Bangalore and the 2er building crew from Hannover, along with 24 skateboarders and builders from around the world to build the first, free public use skate park in India. Professional skateboarders Chet Childress, Al Partanen, Stefan Janoski, Omar Salazar, Lennie Burmeister, and Rob Smith all joined in on the build and skated the finished project.
