Not everyone is born with the same opportunity. Some children grow up with a blueprint to success and support in every corner. Some children grow up surrounded by crime, drugs and poor environments. Today, people care about others more than ever (don’t believe that hate propaganda). We all have jobs and our own responsibilities, but we can find ways to chip in and help our communities.
Our niche is driven by a love of board-riding. Spread the Shred is a tiny operation working with local youth, shops, organizations and brands to give something back to the local board-riding community. Surf, skate, snow; we love it all and just want more kids to have the chance to get on-board. Right now, we take our little bit of cash and work with local skate shops to buy as many skateboards as possible and give them to awesome organizations like Common Ground and local Boys & Girls Clubs. One day, we’d love to work with the local skate shops to do skateboarding classes in the nearby communities that need it the most. Skateboarding isn’t everything, but it can keep kids in the skateparks and off the streets (figuratively speaking only of course – street skating is our favorite).
