D.I.F.O (Do It For Others) is a not for profit skater operated community in Hamilton that focuses on raising funds for Cuba’s deteriorating skate park. Along with raising funds the crew collects skate decks, building materials, and clothing to give to the kids that are passionate about skateboarding but cannot afford or don’t have access to the gear. We had a short chat with Scott McDonald, founder of D.I.F.O to see what they have in store for the future and how skate culture has influenced the struggling country of Cuba.

We hit the town with Andy Anderson and his homie Darian Vincent from Authentic Board Supply the other day. Cruising around on the Sky Train, Andy took us on a multi-city tour of a day in his street skating life . It was on this cool December day, with oases of dry spots scattered in between icy streets and snow patches that I got to know a bit more about Andy Anderson: he’s 18yrs old, started getting coached by Hippie Mike when he was 7, accidently took an advanced art course in high school, travels the country giving talks to schools about following your dreams and he’s punk as fuck! Ranked as one of the top freestyle skaters in the world as an amature, Andy’s an adult now and hitting them streets. We’re hyped on Andy and hope to see a lot more of him on Gnarcore.com – check out this Vancouver video-tour with a little hidden gem at the end. Enjoy.
Making myself right at home – good times back on the grind . .
