Pirate Movie Production's HOOKED and Snowboard Mag getting these guys hyped!

On Friday March 25th Tahoe locals braved one of the heaviest storms in Tahoe's illustrious history to come down to Lakeside in Tahoe City and show their support for children in need.

The Bridge to Skate Foundation was created by Tahoe local Chantelle Heroux. Its goal is to bring education and health consciousness to children in 3rd world countries through skateboarding. Bridge to Skate has, and will continue to, make an impact in areas of need in South America and the United States by building schools, skateparks, and playgrounds as well as educating these underprivileged societies about nutrition and exersize.

As the doors opened at 9pm the crowd of charitable locals started rolling in. The $5 donation at the door was exceeded by all and the drinks began to flow!
