We build skateparks with the kids.

Our efforts in 2020 have been devoted to the development of the skatepark in Antelope, South Dakota and made possible by many helpers and volunteers.


Antelope Skatepark

Our skateparks are ever evolving and always open.

We run a work program designed to encourage youth involvement and ownership of the area. We collect donated skateboard equipment and distribute it on an hourly credit system. (12 hours is a complete skateboard. 5 hours for a fresh deck. etc.)

It has been a joy to host visiting volunteers. We invite those eager to learn and work to join us in the warm months of 2021.

Though many minds and hands collaborated to bring the space to it current state, it is worth mentioning the following for their indispensable contributions.

The youth and community of Antelope South Dakota, Tree of Life Ministries, Rosebud Rental, Sicangu Youth Program, Sicangu Nation Employment and Training Office, Shawn Bordeaux, Mission Lumber, the volunteers from Cochiti Pueblo, Columbia, and California, and the skateshops and skaters who have supported us with gear, Filter, Proof Lab, 510, Rob Norland, Miciah Fukahara, Chaz Delong, and many others. Thank you all for what you have done to be a part of this. We love this life and are empowered by your involvment.

Parmelee DIY

In 2019 we focused on an abandoned church property in Parmelee, South Dakota.


Clay has had the joy of working with some of the best concrete skatepark builders in the business, and has worked as a designer, fundraiser, builder, and general skatepark advocate for projects of all sizes. Here are a few of the projects he's proud to have been a part of:
