Legendary pro skateboarders Christian Hosoi, Jay Adams and Steve Olson – amongst other iconic skaters – are bringing an epic competition at Etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest for the GoPro Legends Bowl Contest. In partnership with The Sheckler Foundation, skaters, sponsors and the community will have the opportunity to shred while giving back and raise funds for “Be the Change” project, which aims to build a skatepark on the Port Gamble S’klallam Reservation. With a serious need of skateparks, The Sheckler Foundation encourages and promotes healthy and passionate lifestyles through skateboarding for those in need.

Since 2008, The Sheckler Foundation was created by professional skateboarder Ryan Sheckler and his family, friends and business associates to show respect and contribute to the skateboard industry that they are so passionate about. In order to enrich the lives of the youth and athletes seriously injured from action sports, The Sheckler Foundation has executed fundraising events, projects and web-based initiatives to raise funds and awareness to “Be the Change”.
