Item specifics

Life is complicated. Sport is simple.

That's what we say. And we're putting our words into practise.

You may remember the mini ramp from catalogues past. 5ft tall and 16ft wide.
We first built it way back in 2005 for our 'Build It And They Will Come' catalogue and it's a beauty.

It's been skated in a field.
It's been skated in a barn.
It's now not being skated in our warehouse.
(It's currently a pile of plywood, 2x4 and screws, so you might need someone who knows 
what they're doing to help you rebuild it, plus a big garden and a half-decent screwdriver).

So the time has come to say goodbye.

This auction is to raise money for Skateistan who are giving kids in Afghanistan and opportunity to escape their daily lives through the outlet of skating.
As well as the miniramp, there's FREE shipping* - Plus the auction includes a tidy bundle of skating gear with the help of some friends:

- A signed Mike Carroll Girl deck (7 7/8") & bundle from Form Distribution

- A pair of shoes from Vans (well - a form to send away for your preferred size & style)

- A custom skateboard setup of your choice from Shiner Distribution

- A years subscription to Sidewalk / Kingpin magazines from Factory Media

- A hand-printed lino cut by Droog79

Place your bid on this appealing lot to help raise some money for a fantastic cause.

If you've got something to pledge in the auction, please get in touch: info@howies.co.uk.
Or if you just want to help spread the word, tweet this for a good cause.
We'll be using the hashtag #howiesminiramp to spread the word.

Whether the winning bid is £5 or £500, the ramp gets skated and some kids in Afghanistan going through a tough time
might forget about their troubles for a while through the medium of skating.

Life is complicated. Sport is simple.


*If you live on the UK Mainland - Wales, England, Scotland.
