"Since 2011, we have been connecting the hearts of people of all kinds everywhere to bring a unique dynamic to the skateboarding culture..."


We are the skate connection

The Skate Connection is a Federal Non profit 501(c)(3) committed to providing opportunities for people with and without disabilities to skateboard together and cultivate an integrated community deeply rooted in the love for skateboarding. 

Founded in 2011 by Adam Grijalva, The Skate Connection is a simple, dynamic organization that has sprouted from a small crew of skateboarders to a movement that is reaching communities all across southern California and connecting the hearts of skateboarders worldwide.

At The Skate Connection, we don’t create skateboarders or make friendships rather we just receive new members into our community and provide an authentic skateboarding experience so they may encounter the transforming love of skateboarding.

The Skate Connection helped me make friends that changed my life forever
