Connecting Dots - Lakota Skate Exchange

Recently the student skateboarders at Skateistan, Kabul started an exchange program with a group of Lakota (Native American) skaters on the Pine Ridge reservation, South Dakota. This program entitled Connecting Dots will see the decoration of 10 blank decks in unique designs by both groups. After the exchange the skaters in Pine Ridge will be able to skate on our specially designed skateboards, and likewise we can go skateboarding on those they have made for us.

Last Saturday we had the first class of the exchange, in which the Skateistan students made a plan, divided the tasks between each other and worked on a introduction video to give to the skaters in Pine Ridge. The Skateistan skaters are very excited to be involved in this program.
