Clyde Singleton Gives Back with "Boards for Bros"


Over the weekend, I was asked to join Ed Womble, Travis Monroe and the skaters here in Winston-Salem, NC, for their annual Skate and Donate event. This year, over 140 complete skateboards were given away all throughout the city with countless smiles going along with 'em. Get some added holiday hype with the photos below! —Clyde Singleton

002I’ll never forget the look on these kids' faces when Santa got out of the car at Rolling Hills Apartments. A little Christmas stoke goes a long way

004We got ourselves a mini Domo Walker in the making

005I walk through these projects nearly daily, and to think we brought the joy of skateboarding to Rolling Hills—it's just an incredible feeling

006Little man said, “Santa Clause! Skateboards!” I seriously almost lost it. What a beautiful day

    Clyde clocks in a clip for every trip around the sun, no easy task for an elder statesman of stoke, but this is the Ollie Llama we’re talking about. HBD to one of the realest ever.
