Mini Ramp for Skateistan

You may remember the mini ramp from catalogues past. 5ft tall, 16ft wide, tons of fun? Well, sadly the time has come to say goodbye.

It's been skated in a field. It's been skated in a barn. It's now not being skated in our warehouse.

We'll be putting the ramp up for auction on eBay towards the end of August and the winning bid will be donated to Skateistan who are giving kids in Afghanistan and opportunity to escape their daily lives through the outlet of skating.

We've got a few fantastic people on board to help us spread the word who have contributed to a tidy bundle of skating gear.

A signed Girl deck, and bundle from Form Distribution

Shoes from Vans

A custom setup from Shiner

And a years subscription to Sidewalk / Ride magazine from Factory media

Even the local courier will help ship it to the new owner for cost.

This appealing lot will hopefully help raise some money for a fantastic cause.

If you want to pledge something to the auction, please get in touch. Or if you just want to help, spread the word with a tweet. We'll be using the hashtag #howiesminiramp to spread the word.

Life is complicated. Sport is simple.
