Levi’s Skateboarding are known for their support to underprivileged. During the last couple of years they have helped get a number of skatepark builds and DIY spots for the not so fortunate off the ground. Their latest project took place in the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota, USA. Home of the Lakota tribe – but also a place with huge drug and alcohol abuse and a suicide rate ten times higher than average. To create better options for the youth Levi’s got state of the art park builders, Grindline involved to hook the Native American reservation up with one of the best parks for far and wide. How benefitting for a community a place like this is can now be seen in a cinematic documentary filmed by Greg Hunt, who went to visit along with Levi’s riders Joey Pepper, Marius Syvanen, and Josh Matthews..
