Being part of a passionate movement.

Most skateboarders, surfers and snowboarders that I am friends with are extremely passionate and involved in their chosen discipline. Not only are they involved on the board but they are part of the fabric that embodies all aspects of supporting and embracing the longevity of what they are so passionate about. When a member of the community is no longer with us, we as a group, feel a void and replace that void in our own unique and special way. It’s never hard to forget but its always best to make sure others remember, and that others are introduced to what that person achieved for experience to be passed on.

With all this said I am writing about my friend Harold Hunter who so many in the skateboard community knew and loved. I work as a volunteer for the Harold Hunter Foundation and also help promote the organization 24/7. The foundation is a great cause and means a lot to me and my friends he left behind. We host several events a year to help bring awareness to and support for our main goal, which is keeping Harold’s name and legacy alive while sending under-privileged skaters like Harold to amazing skateboard facilities; such opportunities that would have brought Harold through. This week will be my friends’ would-be 40th birthday and we as the skateboard community will be celebrating this joyful event! Friends and colleagues will get together and share memories through photography, video and intimate stories. Please join us in our mission for our friend, Harold Hunter.

    Wish I could be there Cohey. I remember watching a movie at 596 and Harold walks in. He said “Choo watchin?” and I said it was Magnolia. He said “Is that like about the plane and the mountains and shit?” I am guessing he meant Mongolia, which I don’ think was a movie, and that was what made him so brilliant. He was effortlessly funny. Always the life of the party and always made you feel like you were. Happy 40th Harold!
