  • Description

    Description

    We are a small skateboarding collective based out of Bangalore, India. We run and maintain “the cave skatepark” in hegede nagar,Bangalore. This is the only free skatepark in Bangalore and we are always keen to to exchange experiences and culture through skateboarding. We run a few skate programs and workshops. We have a two bed dormitory setup with a small kitchenette, which also doubles as a skate hostel for traveling skaters from across the world. Although we are based out of Bangalore we try to push the skate scene across the country and have been doing so since 2011. It’s a DIY skatepark built by the skaters for skaters and we also through amazing parties from time to time.

    Since It’s a DIY spot we would constantly be removing and adding obstacles there will be work related to building concrete ramps along with general park upkeep and maintenance we also have some skate workshops which would give volunteers an opportunity to interact with kids and teach them skateboarding.

    We are looking for volunteers who can go with the flow and adapt quickly in demanding situations work will have lenient timing but spread out through the day. There is no said break time so you take break when you want and have a skate at the park or explore the Bangalore cities vibrant night life.

    We are looking for skateboarders doesn’t matter if your beginner or pro we are all learning from each other.
