Uganda Skate Union

Was watching the news online this morning and was watching a piece on skateboarding in Uganda. It made me do a double take thinking about skating world wide and something I have enjoyed since I was about 8 years old. There is nothing like pushing on 4 wheels 2 trucks and a wooden plank to drop into a concrete pool or just to ollie up a curb. Skating is pure and from the heart. These fellas out in Uganda don't have much but as you can see from some of the videos they are doing what they can. Donations can be made through their website. Send any skate products, money or better yet, email and interact with them. Pretty soon, some little ripper from Uganda might just be killin' your spot. Uganda Skate Union Blog
