Who We Are
Skate and surf clinics, contests and tours are also organized by Poseiden to reach youth within their own communities. Though we are more extreme sports oriented we are now outreaching to other activites within the North County area such as: partenering up with envirnmental clubs to teach the youth about becoming aware of thier surrounding and how they too effect our eco-systems with everything they do.

Poseiden Foundation’s 7th Annual Ladies Day at the Berrics was the place to be last Saturday. Over 100 girls came out to skate, try new tricks, meet the pro’s, and enter the “Best Trick” contest. The Pro and AM girls had an entire day to themselves to skate The Berrics, and in the afternoon compete for $3,000 in prize money during the best trick contest. …”

For the fourth year in a row, Poseiden Foundation founder Micaela Ramirez stands in front of Mrs. Shanahan’s third grade students at Sunset Beach Elementary School. She is here to inspire the students with stories of success. Her speech kicks off the May 2015 Poseiden Foundation Oahu Tour. She shares her story alongside Pro Skateboarder Jen O’Brien, Documentary Filmmaker and Pro Skateboarder Amelia Brodka, Photo Journalist Morgan Cowper and Biomedical Entrepreneur Angela Rabreau. To assist the students in setting long-term goals and dreams of their own to strive for, the Poseiden Foundation invites the youth to “dream big” and map out the logical action steps necessary via a Dream Sharing Worksheet.

Dream sharing and goal setting is the constant theme sung through Poseiden’s Oahu Tour. Ramirez reminds us of the importance of asking the youth: “What is your dream?” and “What are your short-term goals?” As simple as the concept may sound, asking these questions consistently produces responses filled with joy and excitement. O’Brien, Brodka, Cowper, Brent Geren and Ramirez visit Kids Hurt Too and Foster Youth Coalition of Hawaii on Day 2 of the tour.

For the fourth year in a row, Poseiden Foundation founder Micaela Ramirez stands in front of Mrs. Shanahan’s third grade students at Sunset Beach Elementary School. She is here to inspire the students with stories of success. Her speech kicks off the May 2015 Poseiden Foundation Oahu Tour.  She shares her story alongside Pro Skateboarder Jen O’Brien, Documentary Filmmaker and Pro Skateboarder Amelia Brodka, Photo Journalist Morgan Cowper and Biomedical Entrepreneur Angela Rabreau. To assist the students in setting long-term goals and dreams of their own to strive for, the Poseiden Foundation invites the youth to “dream big” and map out the logical action steps necessary via a Dream Sharing Worksheet.

Dream sharing and goal setting is the constant theme sung through Poseiden’s Oahu Tour. Ramirez reminds us of the importance of asking the youth: “What is your dream?” and “What are your short-term goals?” As simple as the concept may sound, asking these questions consistently produces responses filled with joy and excitement.  O’Brien, Brodka, Cowper, Brent Geren and Ramirez visit Kids Hurt Too and Foster Youth Coalition of Hawaii on Day 2 of the tour.

On Day 3 of the Oahu Tour, Poseiden Foundation takes the youth from Kids Hurt Too to the Hickam Air Force Base Hanger Skate Park. Through skateboarding, the team shows kids that a little support from others is very helpful in accomplishing goals. The sound of “I can’t skateboard” quickly turns into laughter as Jen O’Brien teaches a group of young girls to skateboard around the street course. Inspiring the youth to accomplish something thought to be impossible is an enormous confidence builder for these children.

The Poseiden Foundation supports newly developed skills by surprising kids with brand new skateboarding gear so that they can continue to hone their newfound skills after the event.

On the last day of the tour, O’Brien, Brodka, Ramirez, and Rabreau meet up with the third grade students from Mrs. Shanahan’s classroom and their families at the Bonzai Skate Park. O’Brien answers questions and demonstrates proper skate technique. As the kids skate, the Poseiden team rewards the kids for performing their best personal tricks with prizes from Altamont, Krooked, Anti‐Hero, Etnies, Vans, Real Skateboards, GN4LW, Dusters California, Venture Trucks, Thunder Trucks, Land Yachts, Element, Hoopla, and Spitfire Wheels.

As the Poseiden team members walk around the park, parents tell them about how their children were impacted by their personal stories. “My daughter doesn’t like to skate, but she was inspired to come here to see Angela, because she pursued a career in science,” noted one of the parents.  Another parent shares that after his daughter heard Brodka and O’Brien speak about being professional skaters, his daughter finally built up the courage to skate with him.

Skate Con Gusto! And take care of the environment too! Another way to Share the Love and Empowerment is always to be mindful of our impact on the Earth. During the Poseiden Foundation Oahu Tour, the youth were led to clean up the spaces around them and take notice to the Earth’s inherent beauty.
