adidas Skateboarding | Partnership with Harold Hunter Foundation

adidas Skateboarding | Partnership with Harold Hunter Foundation

adidas Skateboarding will once again partner with The Harold Hunter Foundation (HHF) for the second year to host a series of special events rooted in the worlds of art, photography, and skateboarding—realms close to the heart of the late legendary skateboarder, Harold Hunter. 

"We’re excited to highlight both the diversity and universality of the skateboarding community," says HHF co-founder and Executive Director Jessica Forsyth. "This year, we have a range of events that celebrate both the local and global appeal of skateboarding and speak to the power of skateboarding as a cultural force that brings people together and creates wonderful opportunities for community building."

The 2018 Harold Hunter Weekend will take place at multiple locations across New York City kicking off with a book release party of Patrik Wallner’s The Eurasia Project. Sponsored in partnership with adidas, the photobook chronicles the travels of Wallner and his companions under the name Visualtraveling, exploring 101 countries across Europe and Asia throughout the last decade.

Now in its twelfth year, the Harold Hunter weekend festivities celebrates everything Harold from skateboarding, art, music, friends, family, and The Big City with this year’s events paying homage to the rising force of women within the skate community. Special to this year’s women empowerment theme, HHF is working closely with Arianna Gil, member of HHF and Founder of Brujas, the all-girls skate collective of New York.

Celebrating unity through skateboarding, adidas Skateboarding and HHF will host a special All Gender Skate Jam at Performance Space New York. Industrial designer Jonathan Olivares recreates the city’s iconic skate spot, 12th & A with skateable installations comprised of pink concrete ledges and extended bleacher. Inspired by the original inner-city New York skate park that gained global recognition for its customizable obstacles and ledges, the city of New York can experience the glory days of 12th & A once again for the special one-day event.

Along with the All Gender Skate Jam, adidas and HHF also present additional activities around the city including a panel discussion and more.

Celebrating ten years of Skateistan, five years of SkatePal and one year of Free Movement Skateboarding -- who’s next?

The weekend features talks from Elissa Steamer, Karl Watson, Oliver Percovich, Ocean Howell, Kyle Beachy and Alexis Sablone and many more.
