We have the wheel

We have the wheel is our main project. The 1st international approved and recognized skatepark in Thessaloniki, Greece.

During the above mentioned time period of 2 – 3 years we will develop and organize everything necessary to realize the dream of thousands of skaters in and around Thessaloniki.

Our approach is guided by the spirit and example of the famous Tony Hawk, godfather of the skatepark project.

See: www.skatepark.org

Thessaloniki alone has a community of approx. 1000+ skateboarders. Who don’t have a safe and legal place for practise while skateboard, inline skate and bmx have become international Olympic disciplines.

 
Thessaloniki bares a long and significant history in skateboarding.

It is located at the edge of the Balkan Peninsula. Has been a skate able destination for many skaters from all over the world. Many local talents have achieved European or even global recognition. Fans of the sport carry the flame from generation to generation even without a skatepark.

In August 2020 skateboarding will be introduced in the Olympic Games hosted in Tokyo.  Greeks are far behind the global ranking because of the lack of facilities and organised clubs and association.

We seek for the support and donations.   from everyone across the world who has visited Thessaloniki or not. Sign the petition and help us push the government and local administration in the creation of a proper and up to date concrete skatepark. Where future generations will take an equal opportunity in participation as every kid in most European Countries.

 
The Skatepark will become an asset of community value allowing youth to be involved in roller sports and bmx in a safe environment.

Of course the climate of Greece in combination with the location of the city, combined with a brand new skatepark, can be an additional reason for youth travellers to visit Thessaloniki. Achieving this way a raise in tourism and a cultural exchange between young people who want to be involved in this sports and be inspired by other fellow athletes and skaters.

It is not only the olympics that make the need for a skatepark necessary. Most of all it is the opportunity that people will have to be introduced in this sports and gradually create a stronger community involved, influenced and improved as persons by the simple rule defined by the Ancient Greek phrase “healthy mind and healthy body” in a modern and “on board” way.

Therefore we will work hand in hand with the city to find the right location and the adequate resources for the construction. We need the support and donations of everyone who loves skateboarding, other roller sports and bmx to make this happen.
