Get With The Skate Program

The Godfather of the modern skateboard, Paul Schmitt has donned a white blouse and taken his knowledge of how to build a skateboard to the classroom.

After a good 25 years or more pressing plies and founding Schmitt Stix Manufacturers, as well as Element Skateboards, Paul’s educational course called Create and Skate aims to teach young science students the technical side of skateboard that goes deeper that a pretty graphic.

Over a two week period, the students learn about the ecological, mathematical and scientific principles that eventually lead to them building their own skateboard. If this endeavour proves to be a success, it might go nationwide.
