About - Northwest Arkansas Skateboarding Foundation Nonprofit


The Northwest Arkansas Skateboarding Foundation is Arkansas first Skateboarding nonprofit organization on the mission to grow and support the Skateboarding community in Northwest Arkansas.

Skateboarding is an undervalued sport that makes a big impact to not only skaters but the community as a whole. The NWA Skateboarding Foundation was founded to help bridge the gap with giving a voice to skateboarders through grassroots advocacy, showing who skateboarders are and the value Skateboarding makes to our communities with feature films, charity programs, competition events and fundraising for new parks.

The Northwest Arkansas Skateboarding Foundation was founded in late 2018 by Roy Rodezno with board members Brandon Herbert, Jonathan Camacho and Wesley McDonald to lead the mission to make Skateboarding better in Northwest Arkansas. We ARE SKATERS FOR SKATERS and you may see us skating around the parks or streets all over NWA and surrounding areas!

As part of our mission to grow and support our skate community, we will be actively working on charity programs and fundraising campaigns that will help us get towards our goals, giveback to community, events, promote positive skateboarding, keep parks clean and promote local businesses/organizations.

General Donations

We accept general donations such as funds and/or core skate products that will be used for operating the organization, legal documents, marketing/ads costs, funding charity programs & events/contests, cleaning skateparks and fueling other ways towards growing & supporting NWA skaters. Skateboarding and the community is as good as the effort you put into it and to grow the community, it would be a collective effort of skaters, spectators, friends/family, local businesses and other organizations. With all of our efforts we can make NWA a destination for Skateboarding.To donate products contact us here


Lets build NWA into a SKATE MECCA with The Skate Gardens of Northwest Arkansas! Skateboarding takes great skill and practice to learn and also the proper obstacles and facilities help nurture those skills.

Our idea is to have new, state of the art smaller skateparks with more greenspace in NWA cities accessed by the Razorback Greenway Trail system throughout all of NWA.

Each will have unique modern obstacle levels of street/transition to not only challenge skaters but also upgrade from our older existing parks that are falling apart. Skateboarding is now in the Olympics and with the proper facilities, we could have one of our own compete in the Olympics.
