We partnered with Red Bull and The Ryan Sheckler Foundation in March of 2017 to build a skate park in Costa Rica for underserved youth living in urban San Jose. We teamed up to tell a story around the positive impact of action sports, and the value of physical activity, mentorship and goal setting.


The Costa Rica municipal government backed the project, and we worked for 6 months to authorize the build on public land, with the mission to give access to everyone in the community. We brought together 80 American travelers, 40 Costa Rican youth skaters, and 100 local volunteers to participate. Together, we pushed past 10 years of disagreement around skate culture and opened a industry standard skate park on parks and rec land, aside soccer fields, basketball courts and parks.
