✓ — Jim Murphy
In late 2011, Jeff and Vitalogy Foundation teamed up with Jim Murphy, Mark Hubbard, Walt Pourier (from Stronghold Society), Vans, Wounded Knee Skateboards, The Tony Hawk Foundation and other supporters to join the Pine Ridge community in building a world-class skatepark on the Native American reservation.
Wounded Knee Skateboards worked on a deck with Montana Pool Service to promote and educate about the tribes in the Montana area and ultimately, help in supplying decks to skaters on the reservations. There are two decks in this collaboration available... one is a 9" wide, 16" wheel-base square-tail, the other a 8.25" wide, 14" wheel-base round-tail deck, both with punk points.
Vans made a video with Jeff about his involvement with helping to build skateparks on the Pine Ridge Reservation below. Also, watch Stronghold Society's, "Skate Life On An Indian Reservation"... two of the best videos I've seen about educating, building and working in positivity to build a community of support through skateboarding. Thank You!
Shown below is the 8.25" wide; 32.75" length; 14" wheel-base; round-tail Montana Pool Service x Wounded Knee deck. Also available, the 9" x 34"; 16" wheel-base; square-tail in the Mini Skate Shop. Get all Wounded Knee decks and shirts at the Wounded Knee online shop HERE. All of their decks are made in Maine, USA... the best boards you can ride.
I am proud to have Wounded Knee skateboards to ride and now, I have a few available in the Mini Skate Shop to share with you all. I've been rolling on the, "We Remember Andy Kessler" 8-ply for a year and it has easily become my favorite board.
