"I support Skateistan because I think that bringing boards and action sports into kid's lives is an amazing way to build their self-confidence, make them thrive, and help them stay young at heart forever. Thanks Skateistan for all your hard work!"

Skateistan US Board Member and previous Operations Director, Brandon Gomez, is right now in Peru helping Concrete Jungle Foundation build their first skatepark out there. The park will be at a school in Trujillo, where it will serve as a safe space for hundreds of kids in the surrounding community to enjoy. Follow the progress on their Facebook page.
For once it's not the students at Skateistan South Africa getting creative but the Counterspace team creating new features for our Skate School. We want our spaces to be interactive and creative learning environments. Thanks to the High Commission of Canada in South Africa and SAINT-GOBAIN for making it happen and The Coloured Cube for building it. #KeepSkateistanRolling
Thanks to skateboarding youth are exposed to people of different ethnicities, gender, and beliefs. It provides youth with a community to inspire, guide and challenge them. It also teaches them how to be creative with ideas and it provides the outlets for that creativity.
