On Deck VIII

JoeCastro_ghosts_returning_permanentI recently donated this custom painted board (entitled Ghosts Returning) to the Montana Skatepark Organization’s On Deck VIII art auction and fundraiser.  The auction takes place Friday May 3 at the Brink Gallery in Missoula – however, for those like me who can’t make it out to Big Sky Country, you can still bid on this deck (as well as 40 others) here online.  There are some super sick and creative pieces this year from Haroshi, Matthew Curry, Dylan Goldberger, Matthew Paris, Travis Smith & Randy Laybourne among others. Take a browse, place a bid and help build some new skate spots in Montana.

About the Montana Skatepark Association:
The Montana Skatepark Association (MSA) is a growing organization of people who have recognized the value that free skateparks provide to communities in the state of Montana. We feel that skateboarding is a healthy, recreational activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages both as participants and as spectators. Skateboarding equipment is inexpensive and the facilities, once built, require very little maintenance.

Since 2000, the MSA has grown into a professional, experienced and committed organization providing support, consulting and grant-based financing for Montana communities who are looking to expand their recreational opportunities. We are 100% volunteer based and every dollar that comes into our organization is spent on building skateparks and skateboarding communities.
