Skate To Fight Sexual Assault

Skate to Fight (STF) is a group created by James Harris and Beau Durrant to help raise awareness and give support and help to skaters of all styles who battle with depression and other mental illnesses, and are able to receive relief through skateboarding. They also hope to introduce the sport to others who have mental illnesses to help them to use skating as a coping mechanism.

STF Team Rider and world renowned downhill skateboarder Candy Dungan suffered the unthinkable when she was 18 years old. Over many years, she was able to learn to cope through skateboarding, community, and support from loved ones. Watch hers and the stories of five other female skaters on their journeys to self empowerment and healing. We challenge all of those who see this video to do their part to combat the everyday rape culture in our world, and stand up for the men, women, and children who have fallen victim to sexual assault.

We absolutely love this initiative. Skate and longboarding have helped most of us deal with our own traumas, experiences, self-steem issues and social & cultural challenges this system make us face. Yes to this, yes to us, yes to doing it together <3
