First time sponsoring skateboarders skating for a good cause

Thank you to the Socksmith for giving me a killer deal on socks for two skateboard causes. I picked up some Socksmith socks and some Down HWY 1 socks yesterday afternoon. One group is already on the road. I spoke to them two days ago after seeing an Santa Cruz Sentinel article about their trek. I contacted NHS and they are going to give them Road Rider Wheels the wheels they are actually using. They come to town late Monday and I plan on giving them socks and wheels. I hope some bearings too. The other group is lead by a friend of mind Jack Smith. He is skating across america for the forth time.

WHAT: To raise money for veterans' services for veterans of of Iraq and Afghanistan by skateboarding and bicycling from the Oregon to Mexico borders. WHEN: 5 p.m. June 17 WHERE: Near Highway 1 and Ocean Street, Santa Cruz. INFORMATION: Call Britany Mendelsohn at 818-519-1638, send email to or go to, or

In October of 2012 Jack Smith's father, and Dylan's grandfather, Jack Smith, passed away due to complications from Alzheimer's Disease. We are making this push in his honor and to raise awareness and $100,000 to help fund care, support and research in the fight against Alzheimer's.  

On July 4th, 2013, our five person team,  ranging in age from 20 to 56 will come together to push our skateboards 3,000 miles from Newport, Oregon to New York City, New York in a little over three weeks. Email the team

Socks for the crew. Thank you to the Socksmith and NHS for the Road Rider Wheels
