About


We are a bunch of skateboarders who release work, collaborate, and support one another.

OpenSB is not a company - it’s an online community with a shared bank account, funded by its members. Legally, OpenSB is an unincorporated non-profit. That's why we're using Open Collective Europe as our fiscal host.
Are donations tax-deductible? Yes, donations from many European countries, as well as from the United States, can be tax-deductible.

The idea was born out of Krak - a skateboarding company some of us launched and managed for almost 10 years now. If you're curious to know more, you can find many details about the things we've built and launched for the skate community over the years in the Call to Adventure here.

So how does OpenSB work? You can think of it as an incubator for skateboarding ideas. OpenSB creates a common good for the whole community, truly owned by everyone. Let’s provide the foundational building blocks for the rest of the community to play with, get their inspiration from, use, build on.

OpenSB releases work for skateboarders. We build a multilayered experience across the skateboarding world, including offline-online bridges, visual, digital, and physical goods.
Our first release is an online worldwide skatespots map, crowdsourced by everyone. Many more releases are coming.

Any suggestions to make it better? Feel free to contribute. We are also looking for all kinds of people to join our team, so please drop us a line if you think you can help us out.

OpenSB is not primarily motivated by profit, though it will eventually need to generate revenue to sustain its product and operations.
We will use your donations to keep OpenSB alive: OSB is free to use, but not free to operate. You can look into our expenses on this page. Based on the actual expenses we had up until now, this is what we’ll be spending your donations on:

OpenSB related costs:
  • domain names: 8€ per year
  • google account: 40€ per month
  • 1password: $240 per year
  • notion: $288 per year
  • figma: $144 per year
KrakMap - crowdsourced skatespots map - related costs:
  • domain names: $105 per year
  • algolia: $13 per month
  • digital ocean: $70 per month
  • clevercloud: $13 per month
  • cloudinary: $99 per month

Total estimated technical + operational costs: ~300€ per month

So that’s the price tag for a collective skateboarding playground for all of us! Thanks for joining 🙏

Beyond this? Members will collectively vote on how OpenSB uses its funds. Our moonshot? Provide UBIs to 1,000 skateboarders.

Keep on pushin' 🛹✌️
