We are extremely happy to announce that we’ve passed the $65,000 mark for fundraising!
Go Skate Day at Ambleside was a huge success as well, bringing in close to $3,700 for the park renovation. This could not have been possible without the generous donations from Supra Distribution, Take 5 Trading, and Timebomb Trading. Thank you again.
The eBay auctions continue with boards being added weekly. Check out the listings here. This could not be possible without the generous board donations from Bob Kronbauer.

Bob K. from Vancouver Is Awesome gives an insight on why he has generously donated 100 collectable boards to raise funds for the Ambleside Skatepark Project. Check out the full story HERE.
“HERE is a link to the Ebay store where the boards are being auctioned. I don’t imagine that many of you reading this are hardcore skateboarding fans who want to buy collectible skateboards for hundreds of dollars each, but I wanted to share the story to hopefully encourage you to donate directly to the cause. Chip in a few bucks and help kids over on the North Shore and in West Van get the park they deserve. The original one was built 20 years ago and has since become difficult to skate.”
Our good friend Bob K. has donated his skateboard collection and we will be auctioning them on ebay over the next month to raise money for The Ambleside Skatepark Project! This includes many rare and classic boards that are sure to fetch a pretty penny for the cause!
Thanks again Bob, we are so grateful for this donation!!
