I have been wanting to open a skate park in New Delhi, India, for a number of years and finally it happened. This is Delhi's first and only skate park (for now). As far as I know this is one of only a few in the whole country, and the only one in North India. Skateboarding is new to India and from what I have seen and been a part of I can tell that people of all ages are very excited and ready for it.
CORNTEST was again a huge success, thanks to the town of Taber and all our sponsors and of course Thanks to the BOARDERLINE for hosting it. >>>>>>As some of you may know we lost a good friend just recently and i would like to give a huge thanks to James Nishima for promoting and DJ'ing all of our past events and most of all being such a rad friend. So THANKYOU booda you will be greatly missed.
"By a village situated in the mountains of Addis Ababa, I saw kids sliding down the asphalt with plastic fixed to the underside of their shoes.
As a passionate skater, this inspired me to bring skating to this particularly tough neighbourhood as a way of empowering kids.
As a result “Love in Action” Megabiskate project was born in my heart.
The community includes boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 19 in the Intoto area of Addis Ababa. Many of the kids are hawking in the city day by day and are slipping through the cracks in the system.
Megabiskate uses skateboarding as a tool for empowering youth, to create new opportunities and to be the potential for change.
We hope to grow a sustainable organization that is recognized locally and globally for changing the lives of youth through skateboarding. "
