Amigo is a group of misfits who banded together to help create a more positive future for Cuba's youth through skateboarding, art and music. Since 2010 we have been 100% volunteer led and operated, we are governed by no man and we seek to help all who ask. Our mission is simple; get up, get out and get the job done.

cuba is in peril, why focus on skateboarding?

The skateboard by itself has now power, it is a lifeless inanimate object. Put the skateboard to a child and it is a means of transportation, healthy entertainment, a piece of sporting equipment and a free membership to an international brotherhood. Put the skateboard beneath our feet and it becomes a vehicle that transports us to deliver a message. The message is what unites the broken, strengthens the weak and empowers all that it touches...  The message is Love.
