The Skate DIY page on Facebook has been going on for almost a year but it already has 4,400 likes based on 766 posts to date. If you’re a skateboarder you owe it to yourself (and your community) to “like” this page. It’s updated several times daily with DIY projects in various states of completion in various parts of the world. Sometimes it’s just a picture of the spot, sometimes it contains a tip or link. It’s always inspirational, and exposure to the sheer volume of work being done by others is enough to make you get off your ass and actually, you know… do it yourself! The page owner Clayton Graul also has a more localized (Hollywood) resource called Urban Skate Project with a similar goal:
It’s really about motivating people to get out and do it. Lots of examples from novice to pro. Just trying to make the world a better place to skate.
Skate DIY started as an Instagram feed that is still going. I asked Clayton to come on board here at Skate and Annoy, but in true DIY fashion he wanted to do his own thing and not be beholden to “the Man” at Skate and Annoy. Who can blame him? Spread the word and raise your own stoke level by following Skate DIY.
