Event Overview

Love to Skate? Rebuilding Exchange is partnering with Sk8 Chicago to bring you this awesome new workshop that consists of designing and building your own portable skate ramp. The instructor will guide you step by step through the design process from kickers to quarter pipes or boxes. Design aspects can be tweaked to different ability levels and sizes that can fit in your vehicle and be skateable in smaller indoor spaces. At the end of the workshop you will have your own ramp!
