Skatepark in a Box

Build your own skate element with a single box – we make it possible. The reconquest of public space, self-realization, intervention, guerrilla skating and to draw attention to current problems in the city are the basic ideas of this box. The initiative therefore comes in the wake of the future users and ideas can be implemented without detours via authorities and long processes. Through the bottom-up principle, ideas and suggestions for improvement can be effectively communicated to the people responsible.

Every skater can go into the nearest park to skate the existing obstacles. But who can say to build his own spot?
