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!
In collaboration with the C.A.P.S., we are pleased to announce the first annual Ptown Throwdown!! The Ptown Throwdown is being held at the newly constructed Paterson Skatepark at 100 21st Avenue in Paterson, New Jersey! There will be a beginner, intermediate, and advanced skate contest divisions with hard/soft good prizes, and cash prizes! Registration and organization for the contest begins at 10:00am, the beginner contest begins at 11:30, intermediate contest begins at 1:00 pm, and the advanced contests begins at 3:00 pm. There will be food and beverages sold at the event for skaters and spectators as well as a DJ playing music. A HUGE thank you goes out to Paterson League, Chick-Fil-A, Underground Skateshop, Adidas Skateboarding, Santa Cruz, Panther Printing Co., Tito’s Burritos & Wings, Dead Flesh Co., 5 Boro NYC, WKside Skate Co., Krux Trucks, Anchor Hardware, and Stereo Skateboards for sponsoring this amazing event!!
To get ready for our mission trip to Hume Lake Christian Camp in the Sequoia National Park this summer, we are going to be asking shoppers at Kings Food Market in Midland Park to help donate towards our mission trip! All of the kids that are joining us on the mission trip will be with us, talking to shoppers about the purpose for our trip, what we will be doing there, and how they can help be involved.
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!
