We need your Help

After several years in the making, the first edition of the UK Ultraskate finally happened in July 2023. But many will not know that this event was initially solely funded and organised by myself, Mr Pierre-Edouard Duedal, until I later had the help of donations from some amazing individuals (see donors list below for 2023). 


I am a British / French Long Distance Boarder, who found sanctuary in the sport. Whilst having always ridden some form of board my entire life, it wasn’t until I experienced PTSD & high levels of depression following a car accident and a number of life events, that I eventually found long distance skateboarding. The sport offered me solace, and an opportunity to discover an amazing community of inspiring individuals. From this, came the aspiration and ambition of sharing this sport with others in hope it could offer others the same joy and benefits it has given to me. 


Whilst ideas were brewing wanting to organise an event that could help share this sport with others and increase the public visibility, I wasn’t sure how to do this on a larger scale. It wasn’t until 2020 when I saw Push - The film that discovered the world of Ultraskates. Finally in 2022, I attended the Dutch Ultraskate which was such a positive experience it validated this was the event format I was looking for. 


I took an enormous personal and financial risk getting this event off the ground in 2023, and have done so again for the upcoming 2nd Edition (2024), alongside opened myself up to subjection of the masses, and committed endless hours in organisation & logistics, but I love the sport and believe so many others can find the same joy and happiness I get from riding, and wish to share this.


This is neither a large corporate funded event, nor a corporate promotional exercise, but the manifestation of a simple and pure passion.


The event sponsors will hopefully provide generously to the raffle, which will hopefully help fund a portion of the event, but many of these businesses within this sector are run by passionate entrepreneurial individuals that will offer what they can to support the community, but financial support is often difficult. 


This is where I need everybody's help!


Following the 1st Edition, I know I will be having to invest over £3000 into this event out of my own pocket (of which I have already committed £1500 - Feb 24), with costs exceeding £5500, and I need to ensure I can break even to be in a position to run the event again.

Following the success of the UK Ultraskate 2023, (and hopefully further success of the 2024 Edition) my hope is to make this an annual event that can grow into a festival that brings together our ever growing community.


Without the enormous help from our donors last year (2023), the event would not have met the financial requirements (of breaking even), and this years Ultraskate would not be a possibility. But once more, we need your help to make this years ultra a success, and to enable us to continue this event into the future. 

Every donation to the event is extremely valued and appreciated. Donations to this event go directly towards the event, and prospective future editions. Donors will be mentioned on the UK Ultraskate website to express gratitude for your contributions.


I thank you for your support, and I hope to see you at the UK Ultraskate 2024, or maybe at a future edition.
