Elemental Awareness in Watts

IMG_1520Elemental Awareness long time family member PJ Harris has been running an after school skate program on South Central Avenue in Watts, CA for the past 7 years. PJ has been an important part of skateboarding in his community and we love to support him in his efforts to spread positivity through skateboarding. Levi Brown, Chad Tim Tim and the rest of the EA crew recently went up to Watts for a visit to skate, donate some skate obstacles and stoke the kids out with skate product. The Mountain was also there giving tee shirts and high fives away to all the kids. The day was a blast and everyone who came out had a great time. Special thanks to PJ Harris, Heidi Lemmon and everyone who is making a positive difference in their community.

EA visits Lawndale High School Skate Club

Lawndale2Elemental Awareness linked up with Element Pro Chad Tim Tim and Skate Camp Director Andy Dicker to visit the Lawndale High School Skate Club. Students from Lawndale High School started a skate club that meets every week. They invited us out to tell them about how to pursue skateboarding as a career. The theme of the day was “Find something you love and never stop doing it“. It was a great day and we left the school that day just as stoked as the kids. We even all got kicked out of a skate spot all together to end the day…Classic. Special Thanks goes out to Elissa Finch for helping facilitate the Skate Club as a Teacher of Lawndale High.

New EA promo video from Camp


Hot off the presses for your viewing enjoyment is the new Elemental Awareness promo video.  This video was filmed and produced at Element YMCA Skate Camp by Mitch Buangsuwon and Tom Mull.  It describes the EA program at Skate Camp and what the kids learn in 4 days at camp.  This video stars EA instructor and heartthrob Mat Luciani.  Mat has been an integral part of the program for almost a decade and we are proud he still calls skate camp his summer home.  Special thanks goes out to all the Skate Camp Pirates and kids who came through the program this past summer.
