Isle x SkatePal Launch

In September 2016, Isle Skateboards became the first ever professional skate team to tour the West Bank.

We had a great time showing the guys around and are to proud to collaborate with them on a limited edition Isle x SkatePal 'Curiosities' deck, available in all good skateshops now!

Head over to Free Skate Mag to read an interview with the team about their experience, and check out the film about their trip Pieces of Palestine by Jacob Harris below.

Jayyous Skatepark

We're very excited to announce that our next skatepark will be built in the village of Jayyous in collaboration with our friends at SkateQilya!

This September we will be working with a team of international volunteers and professional skatepark builders to construct a 600m2, free access community skatepark in the picturesque Palestinian village of Jayyous. 

Working together with the local community and partner organisations, we will provide the fast-growing group of skateboarders in Jayyous a safe space to engage with each other and call their own!

In memory of
Ignacio Echeverria

Last Sunday skateboarders from all over London gathered to celebrate the life of Ignacio Echeverria, the Spanish skateboarder who was killed whilst trying to defend a woman with his skateboard during the London Bridge attack.

The skate session was an immensely powerful and positive event, and a real reminder of how amazing the skateboarding community is. We skated together in solidarity, travelling the route that Ignacio took around the London Bridge area that day, turning a painful memory into a positive one.

We are extremely humbled and honoured that Ignacio’s friends and family have decided to donate money in his memory to SkatePal, as he had previously told them that he was inspired by our work in the West Bank.

Our event at Southbank this weekend is dedicated to his memory.
