Founded in May 2015, Skate Motivation was founded as a Instagram account that quickly grew to over 20,000 followers in 4 months. In September 2015, Skate Motivation also launched a website and a podcast dedicated to adding a unique voice to the skate community. Skate Motivation was founded on the belief that skateboarders everywhere have the power to transform their lives and the communities around them. We noticed that although there are tons of places online to read interviews, watch contest, and learn tricks, there was nothing about the motivational aspects of skate culture.
Skate Motivation is a project of STOKED.org. STOKED is an award winning non profit organization with the mission of promoting personal development, academic achievement, and healthy living through action sports culture. Since 2005, STOKED has impacted the lives of 3500 youth in New York and Los Angeles. Skate Motivation is a new project dedicated to serving the skateboarding community.
