Bay Area Derby (BAD) is not just about skating in circles on a flat track. We like to do flips, twists, grinds, stalls and slides on ramps too. BAD recently teamed up with Skate Like A Girl , a unique local and international organization that teaches skateboarding while promoting social justice, and now we have an opportunity to build our own skate park… but we need your help!

Together, Bay Area Derby + Skate Like A Girl wants to provide a safe space for girls and women (cis, trans, female-identifying and genderqueer) to promote their personal growth, athleticism, leadership and empowerment through skateboarding and roller skating programs.

Check out the photos from our first collaboration session with only one ramp:

Now imagine what we can do with a whole skate park!

Here’s where you come in… We have the ramps (three half pipes, a spine, an 8’ vert ramp and one mini ramp) but need some assistance with the supplies:

Pressure treated plywood
$ 50.00 X15 

1-5/8 deck screws
$ 10.00 X45 

3" deck screws
$ 30.00 X10 

6" deck screws
$ 50.00 X5 

star bit
$ 5.00 X15

tool rental
$ 50.00 X10

We are accepting donations of any monetary value to build this amazing park!

Thank you from all of us at Bay Area Derby & Skate Like A Girl

#20skateteen is well under way at the BAD Park. Bay Area Derby and Skate Like A Girl would like thank all of our amazing donors! With your help we raised $3710 to purchase essential building supplies in order to complete our indoor skate park. Since the completion of the ramps, the BAD Park has been able to host two ramp certification courses and a few open skate sessions with plans for similar events in the near future, as well as new skater training clinics and boot camps.

We cannot thank you enough for helping to create a safe space for shredders of all ages to participate in roller skating and skateboarding programs in a strong community environment.

You are all amazing! 69 people pitched in and helped us reach our original goal of $3,000 for building the BAD Park.

BAD and Skate Like a Girl have been busy building the ramps with all of the tools and supplies you helped us buy. But here’s the thing... like most things in life, it’s costing a bit more than we thought. So we’re increasing our goal to $5,500. This will help ensure we have a safe park for girls & women (cis/trans/female-identifying/genderqueer) to skate and build community.

If you haven’t chipped in yet, there’s still time to be part of something amazing in Oakland.

Already donated? We can’t thank you enough. Please help us out by sharing with friends and family to help us reach our new goal.
