OUR STUDENTS

"The people that think of skateboarding as a sport only for boys are wrong. I think the word sport means that girls and boys can play together."

Kov Chansangva (Tin), Skate and Classroom Instructor, 20

WHY SKATEBOARDING?


Because once kids latch onto skating, much more is possible: Education, Community, Leadership
