LPSTK GAZETTE #003
LPSTK x CENTRO CREATIVO
Lipstick teamed up with Centro Creativo in Sayulita, Mexico last October to introduce skateboarding to the kids of Club Skate Tamarindos. It's humbling to see the impact skateboarding is already having on these kids lives. We look forward to strengthening our partnership and helping Centro Creativo pursue a safe environment for the kids to learn and skate. Enjoy the video!
THE MATINEE DECK SERIES
The LPSTK Matinee Series has become an instant classic - recognizing and celebrating the work our Pro Volunteers have done to support our mission. A huge thank you to Thiago Linhares for his graphic design & illustration work on his first board series ever. A special thanks also to Marcelo Duarte for his conceptual & design leadership on this project!
Be sure to check the fun commercials promoting the decks on our IG! And like Tommy Cuba said "you better hurry to get yours, it's gonna be sold out again...sorry."
LPSTK x SKATE NA VILA
Our return to Skate Na Vila this year was heartfelt witnessing the kids' progression with skateboarding. Hearing stories about the kids practicing for hours and improving in school was phenomenal! We look forward to continuing to strengthen our partnership and find ways we can further support the daily work at Skate Na Vila. Até a próxima vez!
LPSTK x DROP DO BEM
Our second stop in Brazil this year was with the project Drop do Bem on-site at Swell Skate Camp. Led by skate activist Dinho Rejani we spent time having breakfast, setting up new completes, and skating with the kids. We can't think of a better location for the kids to have an opportunity to further progress and learn about skateboarding culture!
A big thank you to our partners and donors from this year's #CompletesForKids campaign. With your support we were able to provide new or upgrade all existing equipment. Muito Obrigado!!
FEATURED VOLUNTEER: YESENIA RAMIREZ
We're excited to welcome Yesenia Ramirez as the newest LPSTK volunteer. We know she's got a bag of skateboard tricks and a good heart for the cause. Welcome aboard!
"Born and raised in Los Angeles as a Latina skateboarder, Yesenia has seen and dealt with real struggles that society has exposed to neighborhoods. Despite adversity she continues to master her craft and push on with a kind positive attitude towards everyone." -Aaron Roney
