LE SKATE MODERNE

An interesting video about skaters in the French countryside. Unfortunately, or fortunately, they don’t actually dress like that in the countryside! The director says the choice of outfits were for aesthetic reasons, but the stories are 100% real.

More about the video and the director Antoine Basse (in French) here

Another interesting skate initiative is Skateistan, a non-governmental organisation with projects in Afghanistan and Cambodia which uses skateboarding as a tool for empowerment.
