Help us pioneer in building Tonga’s very first skatepark!
Having lived in Tonga for 4 years now, Chris and I, along with our One Love Inc. board members, have been excited to watch the kids here develop their skateboarding skills. We had plans to lease a warehouse for starting this but got word the government has need of it for the upcoming 2019 Pacific games. The funds we had raised for the warehouse will be used in building this skatepark, but we need a little more to build a half pipe for the skatepark. Aside from the land we live on, skateboarding is almost nonexistent here on the islands and this skatepark could be the beginnings of a skateboard movement. Everyday we watch the kids on our land skateboard in circles, sometimes they create makeshift ramps, but scrap wood is not as available as it is in the US or other countries. They do awesome with what they have but are ready for the next step. We have room to build a skatepark where we live , and we want to take advantage of this opportunity to showcase to Tonga what these kids are capable of and what we would like to do in the future in building a camp for the youth to learn various skills. This skatepark would be a small step for something bigger in the future as we get the word out for skate sessions on Tonga's first skatepark. Help us make this dream a reality for the youth in Tonga!
