Friday, June 14 - Students, teachers, friends and family gathered at Roarockit's teaching facility to celebrate the successful completion of the Oasis Skateboard Factory's 4th year. The innovative program uses skateboard and street art design to re-engage students and help them graduate by earning high school credits.
The Oasis Skateboard Factory (OSF) has taken our Thin Air Press technology to places we could have never imagined, and we are always so honoured to host their year end graduation party!
Here's a few photos from this years event:
