Get a Board

I am part of a nonprofit foundation called Get a Board. We teach inner city kids how to skate and surf. Most of the kids have never seen a surfboard or skateboard before so we either take boards to them or piles the kids into a bus and drive them to the beach for the day.
These photos are from a homeless shelter in Orlando where all of these kids live with their families. This was the second visit so some kids were able to stand and skate and try a small ramp we brought. When we get enough skateboards we are going to give one to every kid who we taught this summer and let them paint it however they want.
