TONY HAWK VISIT SKATEISTAN CAMBODIA


Things like this just get me really happy
In December of 2013, Skateistan Cambodia hadTony Hawk stopped by to spend a day at the park.
Tony met Skateistan staff and students, helped out with some classroom sessions, and blew everyone away with his impressive bag of tricks. He also participated in one of their arts-based educational classes, making a mask out of an old Skateistan deck alongside students and volunteers.
In an interview with local paper The Cambodia Daily, Tony said, “It’s fun here, because they don’t have preconceived notions about what’s cool…so you see people skating here a little bit differently—and it’s refreshing.” About skateboarding, he said, “I would just like to see it as just another accepted activity for kids to participate in…and something parents can encourage.
That’s all I can really hope for.”

So keep on skateboarding♥♥
