Open World Skate (OWS) was founded by Andrew Abdallah in 2021 to combine his 2 greatest passions; Skateboarding and Behavior Therapy. Andrew started skating in 2003 at an indoor park called the Black Diamond. That park and the community it fostered created the foundation for this dream. He continued to skate throughout his high-school, college and adult years. Through life’s ups and downs he eventually began using it to treat his and others mental health with great success. Thus, OWS was born.
He teamed up with other accomplished skaters and behavioral therapists including Paul Abdallah, Nicholas Ma, Ayodeji Odulaja (add others here, dont hold back) as well as digital artist and photographer Yvette Wood.
