Perhaps you’ve already heard of it or maybe not, but the large scale indoor/outdoor skatepark better known as the StreetDome complex in Haderslev, Denmark is well on its way to being completed later this summer. Designed by with the help of Rune Glifberg, the crew at Grindline has spent the past months shaping and pouring the hybrid street and bowl elements which will feature some of the best skateable concrete in Northern Europe.
Last Saturday the S’Klallam Tribe in Washington State, joined by pro skateboarders Ryan Sheckler and David Reyes, unveiled their new skatepark with a ceremony and tribal feast for hundreds of Native Americans. This is the first skatepark on the reservation, and it was made possible by the Sheckler Foundation’s first-ever “Be the Change” project. The youth of the S’Klallam Tribe submitted their cause for a new skatepark and received the most votes for their plans to build a much-needed skatepark and basketball court in their community.
Pro Skateboarder and Founder of the Sheckler Foundation, Ryan Sheckler says, “I am so blessed and stoked to skate alongside these kids and to be here for the grand opening of the skatepark. It’s unreal and rewarding to see how the community came together to ‘Be the Change’ and create a skatepark for the kids of the tribe.”
