WE REMEMBER ANDY KESSLER – WOUNDED KNEE SKATEBOARDS

It has been a vision of Andy and myself, since Andy came up with the name”WoundedKnee”for our skate company back in September of 1998, to someday build a skatepark on the Pine Ridge Reservation in memory of those who died at the Wounded Knee Massacre, and to also provide a positive place for the youth to gather and skate. Even though Andy is gone, his spirit lives in this company. This image that Ivory Serra shot in the streets of NYC defines not only who Andy was, but who we all are as skaters. Free and independent with no fear. The proceeds of this board will go to our skatepark projects that Andy and I envisioned many years ago. It will go to support the kids through events and product to hook more kids up to skate and connect to that spirit of freedom and independece that started this company in the first place. Thanks for your support and MAY THE SPIRIT OF ANDY KESSLER LIVE ON FOREVER. — Jim Murphy, Wounded Knee Skateboards
