Skateboarding in Africa

The momentum for skateboarding in Africa continues to build.  In many places around the world, skateboarding is a positive influence for kids who are looking for something to do that keeps them away from illegal activities.  It is an activity that is both intrinsic and social.

Another organization has started their work to further introduce skateboarding as a positive influence in Ethiopia.

Whether attached to a school, a church or just a group of well minded friends, skateboarding can help kids focus their energy into something constructive that will last a lifetime.
