The Hood Games showcase the talents of youth in Skateboard, Art, Music, Dance and Fashion. The Hood Games attracts a partnership of professional skateboarders including Karl Watson and Paul P-Rod Rodriguez. The Hood Games has been successfully produced over 19 events in Oakland, San Francisco, Napa, Los Angeles, Las Vegas.
Hood Games is a grassroots level community event started in 2005 in East Oakland as more inner-city youth were gravitating to skateboard culture. The events serve as a bridge between urban communities and the skate lifestyle while incorporating art, music, film and dance performances.

Hood Games also collaborates with local schools, youth centers, city governments, local authorities, the skate community and city parks to make a memorable experience for the kids and families. Hood Games would like to continue to give the youth an opportunity to showcase their talents in both skateboarding and the arts. The event is developing a strong fan base in the Bay Area as well as Los Angeles. Hood Games expanded the event to include Las Vegas this past January with an amazing response.
