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
News and Updates
That’s Gnarly Continues to Deliver
We’ve got a couple updates to That’s Gnarly this week. Most importantly, the introduction of user submitted initiatives! Do you have an organization, charity, or other initiative you’d like to support with portions of your revenue as a creator on the platform? Well now anyone can submit an organization to be included as an option for creators to send a percentage of their revenue to. In addition to initiatives, there have been overhauls to the creator and visionary profile pages. Head over to your profile and check it out!
Every time you mint a clip:
50% goes to athletes.
50% goes to an extreme sports initiative.
Initiatives give athletes the means to uplift their communities.
Here’s how it works. ↓

Gnarving Coming Soon
Here’s your weekly reminder that the gnarving is sneaking up on us and will be here in no time! The gnarving is when the duration of each auction doubles, and this time the auction duration is going to increase from 40 to 80 minutes. At the time of this writing, there are 168 auctions left. And don’t forget, the next gnarving will also mark the beginning of auction extensions and the end of sniping! Interested in learning more about how our auctions work? Head over to onboard.wtf.
We have lots of exciting proposal ideas constantly in the works. Please take a look and give feedback in the discord forum!
