What does a Zulu village have in common with Tony Hawk?

Well, it's the Skateboarding technique!


"I consider skateboarding an art form, a lifestyle and a sport," stated the famous skater and stuntman Tony Hawk

And he's right: skateboarding is undoubtedly a creative job. 


Riding on the road

In 1960s California, as the Beach Boys climbed the charts singing Barbara Ann and entertaining the entire West Coast, surfers finally had the chance to ride the waves without stormy seas. They expressed their passion thanks to the skateboard, even in difficult circumstances.

Over the years, this action sport was essentially considered a hobby, a game for kids and children.

Today, skateboarding has become a sport of all respects which led it in 2021 at the Games of the XXXII Tokyo Olympics (postponed by one year, from 23 July to 8 August 2021 due to the pandemic) so it will officially become an Olympic discipline.

By the arrival in the village of Dallas Oberholzer, things began to change. The founder of the Indigo Skate Camp has started creating safer skateboarding environments in the most unpromising places, creating a real help for these guys, who are supported and protected by their coaches, but there is more:

  "They taught me to respect people, just as you'd respect yourself" that is what Andile, a child from the village, learned thanks to this sport.
