About Me

Hi, welcome to I built this site as a free service to skateboarders everywhere. My aim is to develop a high quality, worldwide database of skate spots with a dead simple interface.

A little history: My name is Dan Dunham. I've been skateboarding for 24 years, and programming computers for even longer. I grew up in Lansing, Michigan and studied Computer Science at Michigan State University. In the spring of 1994, my freshman year at MSU, I started the first skateboarding website, DansWORLD. That site is still up, though it hasn't changed much over ten years and most of the info is outdated. In 1999 I got married and moved to San Francisco, where I've spent the last ten years having a blast skateboarding and doing web operations and programming work.

I hope you get some use out of this site. I encourage everyone to submit any spot they like skating, no matter how big or small. The goal is for you to be able to find fun places to skate, no matter where you are or what you like to skate.

I'm always looking for ways to improve the site. If you run into a problem, or have any suggestions or feedback, shoot me an email at If you want to keep tabs on what's going on with the site, you can follow me on twitter.
