To kick off Harold Hunter Weekend, on Wednesday, May 31st, from 6-10pm, UXA will host a special HHF benefit event at its retail store located at 99 Scott Avenue in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

The Harold Hunter Foundation, in association with presenting sponsor adidas Skateboarding, and primary sponsors G-Shock, HUF and Skullcandy, is proud to announce it will host a series of art, photography and skateboarding events in New York City from Wednesday, May 31 through Sunday, June 4 – all in remembrance of legendary skateboarder Harold Hunter who passed away in 2006.
On May 10th, HHF & the Collegiate Skate Tour paired up to host our first ever "Keep Grinding" college workshop for skaters at House Of Vans.
Over 40 NYC skaters ranging in age from 13 to 27 participated in a presentation, panel discussion with 4 local skate community members from different backgrounds and experiences who shared their thoughts on applying, attending, and finally graduating college, and a Q&A session where many workshop attendees solicited direct advice from their peers. It was all followed by pizza and a private skate session courtesy of House of Vans.
