The team at Athenaeum feels strongly about contributing to the skateboarding community to promote the growth and love of the sport as well as a strong sense of camaraderie amongst riders. As such, we are proud to have provided full start-up funding to the Land of Plenty Skateboard Foundation in Los Angeles, CA, to establish themselves as an organization with the same focus, especially with youth who will contribute to its longevity. Together, Athenaeum and the Land of Plenty expect to continue working very closely together to achieve our mutual goals of providing young, potential skateboarders with the equipment they need to become empowered by the love of the sport we all share.

About the Former Owner, Pat Hickey (now of Seasonal Skateboards)
“I started skateboarding in 1996, I grew up skating around the Boston area. When I was 18 I joined the Air Force and moved away to Nebraska where I was stationed for 4 years. While I was out in Nebraska I got sponsored by my friend Jason’s shop Next Generation. Through the shop I picked up a few more sponsors including eS footwear, and Null Skateboards. In 2005 I got discharged from the Military and decided to open up a shop. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do since I started skating.
My first shop was located in Fremont, NE a small town located outside of Omaha. It was a cool setup. I had a shop on the main level and I had a small skatepark in the basement level. We would have concerts there frequently as well. After staying in Fremont for 3 years I decided to move back east. I felt like there were a lot more oppurtunities back in Boston for me. In March 2008 I opened up a Next Generation in my hometown of Waltham, MA. We’ve been open a year and a half already and things are going great. I want to thank everyone that has supported the shop since I’ve started it. Everyone helps a small business grow.” -Pat Hickey
