Making of: Skateistan's Skate School in Johannesburg

Did you know that Skateistan doesn't actually build skateparks? We run skateboarding and education programs for at-risk youth aged 5-17.  In the countries we work in, we provide the safe space for this to happen, we call them, Skate Schools. 

We just completed the newest Skate School in Johannesburg, South Africa. Our fourth in the world! The facility combines a 500 square meter skate park with 3 levels of shipping container classrooms and an office.It opened to registered students on August 1st. Check out the 'making of' video playlist with the story from rubble to Skate School.
