Salad Days of Skateboarding is a 501c(3) nonprofit based in Los Angeles that operates globally by visiting skateboarding communities to partner with local community leaders to donate equipment, build infrastructure, and collaborate on mentorship programming.
Salad Days focuses its support on skateboarding communities who do not have access to equipment and / or infrastructure and offers continued programming coordination for them to grow an inclusive skateboarding community in accordance with our values of inclusivity and sustainability.
Founded by professional skateboarder, Nestor Judkins, and developed through years of traveling and connecting with skate communities around the world.
Our mission is to promote skateboarding as a vehicle to create community, break down barriers of economic inequality, racial and gender division, and provide a joyful respite from the pressure and difficulties of daily life through self expression.
Our Board of Directors is volunteer-based; there is no payroll for Salad Days of Skateboarding
