On Sunday (July 4, 2021) it was "celebrate and promote" time again. Our founder and instigator Titus Dittmann had invited to the skate-aid-matinee in his backyard.
Unlike the skate-aid-night, our annual charity gala at the Skaters Palace, our skate-aid family met for the first time exclusively and without the press present for a summer charity event in Münster-Handorf. The idea to organize an art happening in the summer months for the benefit of skate-aid was already on Titus' mind for a long time...

Uganda? That's what it said in the message from skate-aid.

The skate park is located near the historic site of Shepherd's Field in the West Bank. Apart from the political instability and the prevailing violence, the area suffers from a high unemployment rate and a high level of poverty. During the construction of the skate park...

We’re back on track! Last week we were able to offer, even though only for two days, our pedagogical skateboard workshop ‘skate-aid@school’ with our mobile mini ramp as a trial offer at the Pleisterschule in Münster. The kids had a lot of fun skateboarding together in a small group and taking on the "challenge" of skateboarding. Skateboarding is a non-contact "sport", but you could tell how much the kids...

Hi there, this is Arne Fiehl from BOARDSTEIN!

This year I celebrated Easter at a very exceptional place. Well, I didn`t really celebrate, for me there`s nothing to celebrate rather than having another day off after that Sunday.

In September 2020, we launched our GIRLS SKATE! campaign, which - thanks to your great support - became a permanent skate-aid initiative. With GIRLS SKATE! we want to actively change role stereotypes and encourage girls to pursue their interests and develop their skills. We want to show them that they can do anything, including skateboarding and create awareness of how valuable skateboarding can be for the personal development....
