To make a skateboarding brand To sponsor local skateboarders. To give 10% of all profits back into the skateboarding scene

by stacey wallis in Braunton, England, United Kingdom

I want to make a local skateboarding brand that supports local skaters. This will be one of the first skateboarding brands started by a women skateboarder in the uk . My brand, Twisted Lemon skateboards, will give 10% of all profits made back into the local skateboarding scene and help support local skateboarders in getting opportunities in the skateboarding industry. I want to manufacture everything locally or uk based using organic products. I will be working with skateboarding inspired designers for limited edition projects. I am currently working with Demon Of Doom Killers who is a local artist from my village he has created my brand and also done a limited edition tee and decks. I have also got Dave Miller AKA Skater Dave to design me a limited edition tee. If I get my brand in to skateboarding shops around the country or even international the 10% will go back into there local scene.

The funds I raise will be used to get my initial garment & deck stock manufactured. I can then use this as retail product for a market stall and to get stock into skate shops across the country.

My overall aim

To teach skateboarding in schools in my community, also to do one on one lessons with people especially girls/women in my community. I have taken my level 1 skateboarding teaching qualification with Skateboard England so I can start teaching. I would also love to get a women's group up and running as women sometimes find it hard and intimidating to get involved in the skate scene, the perception from the outside is often a negative one, in actual fact the skate scene is as friendly & welcoming as any other sport, It has a very similar vibe to BMX Racing, Surfing, Four Cross etc etc. An introduction into the sport with a same sex group security feel, will then enable women to feel confident enough to mix with the men. We have had a lot of mental health problems in our local area, especially within the younger community and I feel that this will really benefit the community and it  is also something that is really close to my heart as I am a mum of two and I feel there is a real need for this for the kids in the community.

USC researchers have found multiple benefits in skateboarding, ranging from mental health to education and careers.

“Skateboarding is embedded in youth culture today,” said skateboarding legend Tony Hawk, whose Tony Hawk Foundation funded the study.
