Every year, kids, parents, teachers, brothers, sisters, babies, grandparents, skaters and non-skaters from all around the world gather together to celebrate Go Skateboarding Day on June 21st. This year, Skateistan students shared their love of skateboarding in the streets of Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa.
“Coming to Afghanistan, I admit that I was a little nervous. In the States we have nothing but war and fighting and burning flags and that kind of stuff about Afghanistan, so in America that’s all we think is happening here... I think that the media does a good job of making Afghanistan look like a very dangerous and terrible place, but I think it’s a very lovely place.”
