Skate Mate


The Build Day



Build Days offer individuals and groups within the community a chance to get involved with Skate Mate and give back to their communities. With the help of volunteers, we all have a laugh as we put together the boards so that they are ready to be given out at the next distribution event. 


Birthday parties, corporate team building, neighbourhood block parties! The possibilities are endless! Anyone can build a skateboard – it is an activity that can be cross-generational and super fun. We will work with you to make your Build Day memorable and rewarding.


Not interested in building the skateboards? That’s fine with us! We always have volunteers ready, willing and able to take care of that job. Either way, we will provide photos of your donation and tell you exactly where and when your skateboards will be distributed in your community. Want the boards to go to your favourite youth-centred not-for-profit? We can work with you to make that happen.


Everything we do is scalable and portable. Depending on your budget, we can facilitate events that range from building 5 skateboards upwards and we may be able to set up your Build Day at your place of work or site of your choosing. The possibilities are endless!



What will it cost?


We need assistance in covering the costs we incur in refurbishing our skateboards. We receive numerous deck donations but we typically need to purchase new grip tape, trucks, wheels, bearings and hardware to make our donated decks roll.


By sponsoring a build, you are helping us cover the cost of making a high-quality refurbished skateboard that can go on to change a life for years to come.


Thanks to our supporters and sponsors, $45 buys us the supplies we need to make a complete skateboard. For example, sponsoring a 20 board build would cost approximately $900.  


We can customise your Build Day to your requirements, whatever they may be. Please get in touch with us so we can start planning your next event together.
