Boards without Borders is a great initiative that I came across when painting at the S.A.M graffiti jam at YAAM (see previous post here) where this non-profit group will sell the skate decks adorned with artworks to raise funds to build a skate park in India. (Mission statement below)

I joined forces with old skool legend graffiti artist Dejoe to make this black and white minimal line-work skateboard deck for the cause. To see both designs upright – my design is on the top right and Dejoe’s is bottom right.

Here is their mission statement:

“Boards without Borders” is a creative and social skateboarding and boardsports non-profit association. The association engages young people through sports, and offers cross-cultural interaction, education, and personal empowerment opportunities.

The students come from diverse ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. They develop skills in different styles of boardsports civic responsibility, multimedia, and creative arts. The students themselves decide what they want to learn; we connect them with a safe space and opportunities for them to develop the skills that they consider important.

In the end of 2013 our first skatepark will be built in Khajuraho which is located 650 km Southeast of New Delhi in India. We also working on a surf park in Berlin.
