Community Skate Drive

Wheelies and Waves 2019 Skate Drive

We want to invite Gunnison Valley locals to support kids in the community by participating in our 2nd annual Skate Drive. Each year, we put on the Skate Drive to spread the love of skateboarding to our local youth. We want to play a part in developing a strong skate community that encourages kids to stay active, build connections, and support one another. 

What is the Skate Drive?

Throughout the summer, Wheelies and Waves collects new and gently used skateboards and skate accessories. Then, we build full set ups to give out to kids of all ages in need during our end of summer Skate Contest. Last year, with the help of many local sponsors and our awesome local skate community, we were able to build 20 boards to donate to the community. Our Skate Contest takes place September 8th (probably), so we will be collecting boards until then. 

How can you participate?

Gather up any gently used skate gear you have that’s been collecting dust and bring it to Wheelies and Waves’ Gunnison or Crested Butte location. Each item donated gets you 1 raffle ticket to win awesome prizes at Wheelies and Waves Skate Drive Bowl Bash on August 24th. Ready to upgrade to a new board? Donate your used full set up at our Gunnison location to get 5 raffle tickets. If you don’t have any gear to donate, you can still help out with the drive! Visit the Skate Corner at our Gunnison shop to pick out a deck, set of wheels, or another skate accessory to donate.
