Skateboarding is fun

Easter Egg!

Congratulations, you found our first secret! In computer programs and video games, secret areas and hidden messages are called 'Easter eggs'.

According to video game lore, the phrase was first used about a video game secret in 1979. It happened when Atari employees learned of a secret message hidden in the popular game "Adventure". Back then, the people who wrote video games and computer programs didn't get credit for their work. The hidden message in that game told players the name of the game's designer.

We plan to add a lot more of our own Easter eggs to the Get On Board Skateboarding web site in the future. Keep checking back regularly for updates!


As the program grows, Get On Board Skateboarding attracts coverage from traditional and online media. Here’s the latest news about our mission to empower children, each other and society as a whole.
