Collaboration is a defining elements of SKATEBOARDING, giving our community a unique ability to create and innovate and help each other grow. We are honored to announce our collaboration with Almost Skateboards. Our friends at Almost have released a limited quantity of custom Next Up skateboard decks, each signed by Rodney Mullen, Daewon Song, Chris Haslam, and Youness Amrani. On November 22th, Daewon Song arrived at our headquarters to present the us with the decks and skate with the kids — a memorable experience for all of us. Since 2009, Next Up has provided after school programs in Orange County, reaching thousands of underserved youth and promoting positivity and education through skateboarding. We are now in the midst of a major project that will help local kids and teens move to the next level: The Success Lab. 100% of the proceeds from this board, available now at The Canteen (the Berric’s online shop) will go to support Next Up’s launch of The Success Lab programs. To us, this feels like the release of our first pro model, and we couldn’t be prouder!! Thank you for your continued advocacy of our organization. We love you.
