Our good friend, Ryan Banach, has a friend who owns some land up in New Paltz, New York where they have been building skate ramps with concrete! We are trying to take a day trip up to New Paltz to meet Ryan’s friend and learn the ways of using fill dirt, building molds and templates, and pouring some ‘crete! This trip will be open to those that are eager to learn how to design and build some features out of concrete!
Join us for a free movie screening of the Bones Brigade Movie at the Fabian 8 Movie Theater in Paterson, New Jersey! The Bones Brigade Movie chronicles the careers of the original Bones Brigade crew which included Tony Hawk, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain, Tommy Guerrero, Steve Caballero, and Rodney Mullen. If you were here for the Lords of Dogtown premier, that story and the Bones Brigade’s share a similar tale of mentorship. Come on out at 7:00 pm for a great movie and for some skate history!
Harold Hunter Day is a memorial day skate celebration for a New York City skate legend, Harold Hunter. Solid Foundation is volunteering to help run the event this year and is looking for friends to join us to volunteer!

Starting June 30th until July 10th, an amazing, hard working group of guys from Solid Foundation will be traveling across the country to Hume Lake Christian Camp in the Sequoia National Park for our mission trip! Many of the participants coming on this trip are skateboarders from the Paterson area that have rarely left the tri-state area to help serve those on the opposite end of the country. On this trip, we will connect with campers and staff members, build and repair camp facilities, and rebuild the camp’s skatepark. While we are away on this trip, the skatepark will unfortunately be closed since all members of Solid Foundation will be on the trip. Do not worry, we will be starting skate camp the day we get back! We will see you all soon!
