Canada Skateboard is the national sports organization with the mission to support, promote and grow skateboarding in Canada.
On September the 5th, Jay Balmer, board member of Canada Skateboard, gave the Vancouver Skateboard Coalition a presentation about the reasons why the organization was created, detailed background on its goals and values and plans to continue to support skateboarding in Canada.
Canada Skateboard board members Kevin Harris and Kyle Dion also joined the meeting and provided personal reasons for joining the organization and their vision for the future of skateboarding.
While skateboarding is going through a lot of exciting developments, it was clear that community and culture were in the hearts and the minds of all that were present, and that Canada Skateboard is very similar to the Vancouver Skateboard Coalition, but at the national scale.
Thank you @CanadaSkateboard and #KEEPPUSHING!
