Phuong-Cac Nguyen at Cool Hunting writes about Paul Schmitt’s DIY skateboard program for kids:

The skateboard industry veteran, who built a rep from his ’80s board company Schmitt Stix, launched the offshoot non-profit CreateASkate program few years ago, educating students in principles of math, art and–perhaps the most important of them all–hard work. Aspiring young skateboarders benefit from hands-on construction, starting either rough from a square, angled board or from an already pre-cut board.
