Poseiden Foundation collaborated with Skateboarding Ecuatoriano and Canon Point Galapagos to create the Skatebenefico Tour: Ecuador. Together we interacted with over 1,500 youth from San Cristobol, Guayaquil, and Babahoyo. We hosted several skateboarding events: Skate Jams, Best Tricks, Game of S.K.A.T.E, Hippy Jump and Skate Clinics.

During the Skatebenefico Tour: San Cristobal, Galapagos, we teamed-up with Canon Point Galapagos and held various surf and skate clinics and best trick and hippy-jump  competitions. We helped out with their environmental impact initiative by participating in beach clean-ups, and learning about the fragile ecosystem that is located in San Cristbol, Galapagos. For our Humanitarian Outreach, we worked with Hacienda Tranquila and volunteered to help with their Horse and Art therapy sessions with children with Autism and Down-Syndrome. We also teamed up with Techo poor Ecuador and the skateboarding community in Guayaquil and Babahoyo we raised over $500.00 towards Techo por Ecuador. The money collected will help complete three post-construction homes.

We at Poseiden Foundation would like to thank all those who continue to follow their passions and dreams. Thank you to all the youth who participated. You are our future and we are excited to see what beautiful changes you’ll bring to your community, environment and community!
