Skatepark Stories

The Tony Hawk Foundation is embarking on a new initiative to seek out stories from our community. We want to hear how skateboarding has affected your life in a meaningful way. Through individual testimonials from all walks of life, we’ll be able to highlight the vast reach skateboarding has in our culture and all the many ways it enriches and empowers us to push farther!

PARTICIPANTS WILL ANSWER THREE BASIC QUESTIONS:

1) WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT SKATEBOARDING?

2) HOW HAVE SKATEPARKS OR SKATEBOARDING CHANGED YOUR LIFE?

3) WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE POSITIVE EXPERIENCE AT A SKATEPARK?

Create a video of yourself answering the questions outlined in the attached form. (If you are unable to record video, you may also submit written responses.)

Select a portrait style photo of yourself and a shot of you skating, if you have one. (Selfies OK.)

Upload your photos/videos using the link below
