#SafeSpaces – Because Every Kid Deserves It

Skateistan Safe Spaces Because Every Kid Deserves It

Over the month of December, Skateistan are hoping to raise $60 000 to help keep Skateistan rolling into next year. This is your chance to make a huge difference in the life of a child.

Why? It matters for kids to have safe places to play, especially those living in difficult circumstances or in a conflict situation. In places like Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa, the streets aren’t a safe place for children. We know the value of a warm meal and school supplies, but Skateistan’s programs provide all that and more. Children deserve more – they deserve a childhood. They deserve an escape from the realities and stresses of growing up in an extremely difficult setting.

Keep Skateistan Rolling!

Jean-Marc at Tampa Am

Jean-Marc Johannes at Tampa Am

Jean-Marc Johannes just got back from the States, where he spent some time in LA, and then competed in the 22nd Tampa Am in Florida.

Apparently this year’s Tampa Am was the biggest one yet, with close to 300 skaters from all over the world competing.

My aim going into any contest is to ultimately win but also do better than before. This year I was very great full to do better than that and get top 50 out of Tampa AM contest! My run was different, I wanted to learn new tricks going in to the contest. I stayed in L.A for about 2 weeks prior to the contest, practicing every day and learning all new tricks with help of two international pro skateboarders and good friends Sewa Kroetkov and Micky Papa at the Berrics. – Jean-Marc

Big ups Jean-Marc! We’re proud of you. Keep an eye on this guy; he’s going places.

Here’s a short interview with Jean-Marc at Tampa from their Thursday Practice video:
