"SKATEtotheMAX was set up following the sudden death of our son and brother Max Hamilton after falling from his skateboard in 2019. Our aim is to provide support and inspire young and old skateboarders to make a conscious decision to wear protective gear. We create a safe, fun environment to make your own skateboard deck whilst learning about safety while skateboarding.
James joined SKATEtotheMAX in 2020. As Tracey’s life partner, involvement in such a good cause was inevitable. James' knowledge in engineering and his passion for teaching supports both young and old learn new skills in every board that is pressed.
