Rob Pontes is a pillar in the East Coast skate scene, never tiring from supporting skate shops, skateparks and skateboarding wherever he can. After Rob was diagnosed with ALS in 2015 skaters from all over the map have been coming together for Roll For Rob events to raise awareness for ALS, and to help raise funds that support Rob and his family to continue treatments to fight it.
This year Mark Gonzales lended a hand by designing a Limited Edition Actions REALized board that are available in skate shops worldwide and on actionsrealized.com
A portion of the proceeds from these Roll For Rob benefit decks will go directly to Rob Pontes and his family to help them through his treatment for ALS.
Thank you skateboarding and skateboarders.
We love you, Rob!
"Each year the Roll for Rob event brings together the skateboarding community from all over to show our support of Rob Pontes and his family."
"It is truly amazing to see how many skaters came together to help out a fellow skater. Every year the number of supporters grow and the reach we have gets stronger, so we knew we had to make the 4th Roll for Rob our best one yet! Thank you Skateboarding and Skateboarders for all the support."
- Andrew Kim (DLX East Coast Sales Rep)
