The streets of Kabul, normally crowded with military convoys and UN
vehicles, have been taken over by girls and boys on skateboards. The
occasion is the fourth annual "Go Skateboarding Day," organized by
Skateistan, an international nonprofit devoted to empowering young
people through sports. After the outdoor show of skill, the
skateboarders, many in traditional dress, took part in the largest
competition of the year.
OLIVER PERCOVICH IS THE MAN! Great idea dude. Hopefully some of these kids make it to the international X-Games to compete against the rest of the world. By the looks of it, some of them are actually pretty good! As a skater myself, this is just great to see....
