Longboarding for Peace is a movement forward, powered by skateboarders and those who wish to support efforts to foster peace, balance and justice.
Shuafat Refugee Camp, East Jerusalem – July 2012. Our first mission for LFP.
Over the past two decades I’ve built a network of people all over the world who support my vision within the world of skateboarding. Six years ago, I was fortunate enough to harness that energy and create something quite different. Instead of putting money into a structured entity, I have allowed LFP to flourish on its own momentum. It took me 7 years from the time I started the Skategeezer Homepage (as a part-time hobby) to turn it into an entity that allowed me to quit the day job. This entity became Concrete Wave Magazine.
Thanks to the generosity of dozens of skateboard companies, we’ve given over $300,000 worth of product over the past 6 years.
In the meantime, if you’ve landed here, chances are you are intrigued about what exactly LFP does. If you feel that you’ve been called for duty, we happily accept you as a potential recruit. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A word about my email address. I’ve had it for over 20 years. It’s printed in 42,000 books and over 1.8 million copies of my magazines. I like it and I’m keeping it. If it dissuades you from not contacting me, my sincere apologies.
Remember, on a skateboard, if you go too far to the left, you wind up in a circle. The same thing happens when you go too far to the right.
The ONLY way forward is a little bit to the left and then a little bit to the right. Same thing when you’re off the board. Extreme left and extreme right just go in circles.
We started this movement in January 2012.
Here’s a sample of what we’ve achieved so far
From our 2017 gun buy back in San Diego.

CALL TO ACTION #1 FLOW STATE
LFP operates a free university (of the mind) called Flow State.
Tuition is free.
The student body is powered by gravity.
And never graduating FLOW STATE is the entire idea.
