Our fans are telling us they are stoked to have great products from top designers matched with a mission they can feel good about. There are a lot of great social causes tied to the extreme sport industry, but none of them are approaching it the way we are.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) July 7, 2009
Hobo Skate Company today announced that their worldwide debut will be at the Maloof Money Cup skateboard event. The Maloof Money Cup is the premiere showcase for amateur and professional skateboarders that takes place July 10-12, 2009 in Costa Mesa, California.
Hobo Skate Company is the creation of Chad Swensen and Jared Hancock, two successful entrepreneurs with a passion for skateboarding. Both founders have competed in extreme sports. The two founders also created the Hobo Foundation which is funded from the proceeds of Hobo Skate Company. The Hobo Foundation provides help to homeless families who are forced to live on the streets.
"Skateboarding is a culture that was born and thrives on the streets in cities of all sizes around the world," said Chad Swensen, co-founder of Hobo Skate Company. "Our motto is 'We share the same streets' with our growing number of friends who have found hard times. Hobo is a way for skateboarders to combine their passion for the sport and take ownership in an important social cause."
Skateboarders everywhere are responding with incredible enthusiasm to Hobo. Hobo recently launched their Facebook group and six thousand members joined in less than three months. "The momentum is incredible," said Jared Hancock, also co-founder of Hobo Skate Company. "Our fans are telling us they are stoked to have great products from top designers matched with a mission they can feel good about. There are a lot of great social causes tied to the extreme sport industry, but none of them are approaching it the way we are."
Hobo is a sponsor of the Maloof Money Cup and will have a tent where you can meet the team members and buy Hobo skateboarding gear. Hobo has recently started building their skate team and they are recruiting incredible talent that also shares their passion for the cause. Expect to see Hobo sponsoring and competing in events like the Maloof Money Cup in the future.
