We love to highlight organizations that are helping, advocating and building up the Skate industry; today we want to give props to Sthlm Sub Surfers. We are pleased to be working with this organization on High Valley Skateworld in Högdalen, Stockholm, Sweden.
Sthlm Sub Surfers main goal is for members to ride more boards. In order to achieve their goal, they realized they had to create new parks in and around Stockholm. Though, a Skatepark does not happen overnight. Sthlm Sub Surfers know the greater the number of members, the greater the chances of the project becoming a reality. They have already completed eleven projects and are currently working on ten more and will continue to advocate for all communities big or small.
