Gnars are a new way to fund extreme athletes
We prefer a world where kids aren't sold energy drinks by their heroes. So as a community of action sports enthusiasts, we've formed a DAO to rethink how extreme athletes get sponsored.
Gnars are NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain
Based on Nouns open source and CC0 artwork, they're stored fully on-chain with no external dependencies. Each one gets you a DAO vote and memberships are available at auction, forever.
Gnars are dedicated to supporting the artistry of extreme athletes

Sponsor I ⌐◨-◨ <3 XV event
I LOVE XV is ColetivoXV annual event which started as a protest by the local skaters in Rio. In 1997 there was no friendly architecture or good skateparks in Rio. The only good place was where the emperor used to live (Praça XV) cause it had European architecture, also as its located in downtown every bus line ended there, therefore in 1997 all the skaters of the city started to meet there until they released a law that forbids Skateboarding and bicycling in public squares. After years of protests, residents were able to change the city law and I LOVE XV became the most influential skateboard culture event in Brazil. Over 1000 skaters attend the event which by tradition starts with a huge Skateboarding parade.
This proposal includes multiple parts: the construction of a skatable noggles structure, prizes for the best tricks, a series of events to onboard new users to a web3 wallet and obtain their first NFT, and nounish video content featuring Gnars DAO. This event is an amazing opportunity to proliferate Gnars and Nounish culture to a bunch of gnarly people!
