The Hobo Skate Company was established in March of 2009 in Scottsdale, Arizona by Chad Swensen and Jared Hancock. They manufacture skateboard decks and apparel. So what’s the big deal, it’s just another skate company right?
Hobo is a different kind of skate company, with the proceeds from the decks and apparel going to the Hobo Foundation which is designed to help the homeless. Co-founder of Hobo, Chad Swensen, says “Skateboarding is a culture that was born and thrives on the streets in cities of all sizes around the world. Our motto is ‘We share the same streets’ with our growing number of friends who have found hard times. Hobo is a way for skateboarders to combine their passion for the sport and take ownership in an important social cause.”
Hobo Skate Company was one of the many sponsors of the 2009 Maloof Money Cup where they officially debuted their line of skateboard decks and apparel.
