Built nearly a quarter century ago by a dedicated group of renegade skateboarders Burnside Skatepark is the preeminent DIY skatepark in the world. To kick off it's 25th birthday this Halloween, the Burnside Skatepark board of directors seeks to complete new additions, lights installed, a new door way, and paint for art and surface care. To accomplish this large amount of work, the park needs your help in gathering funds totalling $40,000. We hope to have the funds raised by October 1st, 2015. We thank you for your support!

Hello everyone , and thank you for your donations to the bridge. If you included your shirt size with your initial donation, you should have your shirt by now. If not, please email me your shirt size and mailing address to shirts@shrunkenheadskateboards.com .
If you donated, and are expecting a tee that you have not received , please email me your shirt size and mailing address to the above email account. Even if we've been in contact, please take a sec to send me an email. I have a lot of emails with addresses, but no shirt size and vice versa. It's becoming a lot to keep track of. All emails will be responded to, and all packages will ship by Monday. Thanks for your support!!! Justin

First knew about Burnside from THPS; who didn't? Legendary. My wife left me right after we moved to PDX, so I used to come down to the park and just watch people skate while I brown-bagged it and ate a burrito. Made me feel a bit less lonely. A while later, I would come by with a new lady I had met, and we would sit up above the big wall and drink beers and talk. Saw a dude bust his head open wide and refuse medical attention. Blood everywhere. Gnarly. 10 years later, I'm married to the lady, and we're about to start a family. I hope I can bring my kid down to watch people skate in a few years. Keep Burnside alive!
