Sk8 Kabul

Kabul: Skateistan
 

A few pics of Kabul’s first skatepark – Skateistan that is taking shape. With the infrastructure now in place – including classrooms and changing facilities two thirds of this hanger space is yet to be ramped. With skating as the demand pull Skateistan plans to enable cross-cultural interaction, social development and opportunities for girls. The sheer scale of what they’ve achieved is highly impressive, their plans for the future more so – outdoor ramps, and a roll-out across Afghanistan.

For the lucky few – there is a corporate sponsorship package available.

Cheers to Oliver Percovich (below), IOU Ramps and rest of the Skateistan team for being such gracious hosts.
