Hello and welcome.

If you have made it here you are in for a treat, an old skool dish refined to fit today’s tastes.

“What do you mean?!”

Well, this isn’t your normal online video premiere this is an experience created to mirror our childhood experience of gathering your friends, grabbing the DVD cover, getting some popcorn and soda’s, on the couch and finally pressing your hear the disc slowly turning…

But… instead, this is 2019 and your remote has turned into your mouse and your TV into Youtube! So grab some popcorn, gather some friends, airplay this on your big screen, click play first and then the thumbnails by using your mouse or trackpad to navigate yourselves through this wonderful experience. Enjoy!

BTW Start with the main feature first you freak!!!

African skating is something we have been thinking about for a while. We (in the western skate media) have seen some promising projects during the last couple of years but there hasn’t been enough to really know what a skater from Africa skates, what he or she wears, what kind of camera’s they are filming with. We got a small look into their world but we would not be able to tell you the difference between the Somalian or Ethiopian skate scenes.

Articles like the one bellow provide that valuable second look into a country’s skate scene. And to be honest, you can see the effects of Instagram and other global skate media on this crew but I also see them skating Nigeria and I hear some Fela Kuti samples as well! All in all an interesting look into a seldomly documented scene.

For those that want to just look, we embedded the video, but we advise you to follow the link and read the full story.
