The Sheckler Foundation, its sponsors and pro skateboarders will come together for the 5th annual Skate for a Cause, presented by etnies this Saturday, May 3rd. Held at the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest, the Cinco De Mayo weekend event will help raise funds for the Sheckler Foundation’s “Be the Change” initiative to help injured action sports athletes and children in need.
Some of the skaters invited include: Chris Cole, Cairo Foster, Christian Hosoi, Fabrizio Santos, Felipe Gustavo, Greg Lutzka, Leticia Bufoni, Louie Lopez, Julian Davidson, Manny Santiago, Nick Garcia, Nyjah Huston, Paul Rodriguez, Torey Pudwill and many more. These pro skateboarders have been invited to skate the park alongside Ryan Sheckler and compete in contests for cash prizes.
A limited number of VIP tickets are available for a $50 donation on the foundation’s site at ShecklerFoundation.org. VIP tickets allow access inside the skatepark; offering up front access to hang out with pro skateboarders and watch them compete against each other. Skateboarding can definitely generate goodwill for those less fortunate.

To celebrate his 30 years in skating, the President and Co-founder of Theeve, Trevor Ward has dishes out 30 tricks in 30 minutes. It also coincides with his 38th birthday today. Probably still young at heart – Happy Birthday Trevor!
Have a look at this incriminating footage captured by another skateboarder which shows a pigheaded father kicking his 6-year old son into Kona’s vert ramp. Fortunately, the kid was ok. If only the tables were turned on this piss poor skoach and his lack of skill in parenting. Drop in mother#%*er, it’s your turn now!
The adidas Skate Copa NYC Qualifiers wrapped up at NYC’s LES skatepark this weekend with good times amongst friends, veteran pros and a heap of talented skaters representing their shop teams. The crew at The Boardr ran the event and has posted the final results right here.
On behalf of our friends and skateboarders in Vancouver, BC we want to share this bit of news along with an online petition to help out the city’s SBC Restaurant. This unique skate zone hosts a 60-foot wide mini ramp inside of its space along with healthy food, art shows and more. Have a look at the petition and take a few minutes out of your day to perhaps help save another creative skateboarding outlet from shutting its doors for good.
