Skateistan recently celebrated its 5th anniversary at the Kabul skatepark with 550 students, staff, alumni, families, officials, community members and supporters. The event was entirely organized and run by Skateistan youth leaders, including some who were our very first students in 2009. Click the image to see more photos!
On October 29th 2009, Skateistan opened the first skate school in Kabul, Afghanistan. It’s much more than a skatepark – for the past five years it has been a space for developing education and a community based on everyone’s shared love of skateboarding.
We are proud to announce the launch of the new Skateistan webshop - the new way to buy all of the Skateistan merchandise. Now you can easily purchase any of our products from one central online shop.
On Friday September 20th 2013 a Skateistan Fundraiser was held in Philadelphia, USA. It was not only time to put on your dancing shoes, but to raise money for a good cause by auctioning artist decks. All donations and profits went directly to Skateistan. People showed up in a big way, by the end of the night every single piece of art work was sold in a silent auction. A fantastic total of 1570 USD was raised at the event.
