The World, on Board

We are an award-winning NGO, driving a global movement in skateboarding and creative learning. Bold, inclusive and playful, we do whatever it takes to create spaces where young people can learn, play, and shape their futures.

Skateistan means

land of skateboarding.

Our truly-international partnership model builds skateboarding infrastructure and schools all over the world, delivers programs and equipment, and facilitates a network of over 800 social-skate projects with funding and resources.

By focusing on at-risk, BIPOC and migrant communities, we promote inclusivity, diversity, resilience and autonomy. Skateistan stretches across humanity, and anybody can be a citizen. Together we can become the most recognized cultural actor in skateboarding.

In everything we do,
we want to bring the world on board.
