We want to make a skate film with you! We want to connect with you, skate your spots, experience your culture and share our adventure!

Here at Resource, we like to think that we're helping our friends live out their dreams of riding skateboards as a career. This project is all about bringing members of our skate family to you and sharing their knowledge and experience with you to inspire you to do whatever it takes to live out your dreams. 

We want to make a documentary from our trip so that we can not only share our experience abroad, but we can also shed some light on your culture and the impact it has on skateboarding in your country.  The Foreign Exchange documentary will capture what is happening in skating within your country RIGHT NOW and hopefully serve as a time piece of modern skate history.  Your support and your pledges will go into production costs that will make this project the best that it could possibly be.

In bringing our skaters to your community, you get the rare chance to exchange stories, skills, tricks and share your passion for skating with some of your favorite riders, in person. You may even be chosen to participate in a one-on-one interview and be featured in the film. You got skills? Show up, get involved, get in the film! We're documenting EVERYTHING so make sure you show up at our stops along the way!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The main risk we're taking by making this documentary is bodily harm! Skateboarding is inherently dangerous, but we're seasoned professionals and it comes with the territory.
Other than that, this will be similar to a typical skate tour, but we're giving you the chance to star in our documentary about this trip, and help tell the story of your skate scene from your perspective.
There are no foreseeable risks in production of this documentary, plain and simple. We are coming to skate with you, capture whatever happens and come home to put together a film that will tell our story!
