 Peter Whitley: Tony Hawks describes Peter Whitley, as, “Peter embodies everything we try to accomplish with our foundation.” Whitley is the former Director and Co-Founder of Skaters for Public Skateparks, as well as the author of the Public Skatepark Development Guide. Tony Hawk Foundation Executive Director, Miki Vuckovich, adds, “Pete literally wrote the book on skatepark development,” and continues by saying, “Bringing his talent and creativity to THF represents a quantum leap forward for skatepark advocacy, in general. Communities fighting for a safe place for their youth to skate now have this tremendous champion working for them, day in and day out.”

Kanten Russell: Kanten Russell grew up in San Diego, and was a professional skateboarder for 13-years. He is the lead designer for Stantec’s Action Sport Group. Kanten says of his design ethic, “My goal is to create skate parks that integrate with their surrounding areas. I think that’s what ultimately changes the perception of skateboarding—connecting a unique lifestyle to the community at large.” He designed and built the Lakeside Skatepark, Encinitas Skate Plaza and the community skatepark in Carlsbad – as well as many other world-class skateparks, all over the globe.
