Cuba is in peril, why bother bringing skateboards?

The skateboard by itself has no power, it is a lifeless inanimate object. But put the skateboard beneath the feet of a child and he or she will have a a new found freedom, a mode of transportation, an source of healthy entertainment and free membership to an international brotherhood. Now put the a skateboard beneath our feet and we will deliver the skateboard and a message...The message is what unites the broken, strengthens the weak and empowers all that it touches... The message is LOVE.

Join us on this epic adventure.

Amigo Skate Cuba is a group of misfits, skaters, artists and musicians who have banded together to help create a more positive future for Cuba's youth. Together we have hand delivered several tons of free skateboard equipment, art supply's and music gear. We also host events that help engage unity, love and freedom.

Since our inception in 2010 we have been 100% volunteer based, self governed and primarily self funded with zero red tape to slow us down. Our management is simple: We see a need, we make a plan and we make it happen.  There is no big corporation to deal with here; we are the skateboarding guerrilla fighters of the charity world; we go in, we kick ass and we get out. Currently Amigo Skate Cuba has members in The United States, Canada, South Korea, Switzerland, Venezuela, France, Spain, England, Colombia and Czechoslovakia. Does this sound like you?.. Take a moment to browse through our website and if you get stoked then join us on this epic adventure!
