skate-aid vs. school sports

In cooperation with the Wilhelm-Hittorf-Gymnasium / Münster, a skate-aid skateboard workshop for students and their “godchilds” took place at the Skaters Palace. Under the guidance of some instructors, everyone had fun skating and skate-aid founder and initiator Titus Dittmann told them about the history of skateboarding and the work of skate-aid. There was free ice-cream at the end of the session and everyone was exhausted but happy! Thanx to all the participants and see you next time!

Review of Torben's Africa-Tour

In February, our chairman Torben Oberhellmann payed a flying visit to some of our projects in Africa. It started with a ground breaking ceremony for a new skate-aid skate park in Windhoek/Namibia. The next stop was South Africa, where Torben visited our long term project in Cape Town and met a lot of old friends. And last but not least he flew into Maputo/Mozambique. During the renovation of the Maputo skate park he met up with Isard Pindula, the president of the local skateboard association ASM.
