Skate culture has become so popular that it is almost a mainstream fashion trend in itself. That’s why I find it so odd when I hear about places that have no skate scene at all. I’ve just watched this short documentary about the birth of the skate scene in Palestine. It’s really cool to see something that’s so developed elsewhere finding its feet for the first time in a country where you’d never expect.
It reminds me of where unicycling was when Leo and I first discovered it. Everything we learnt felt new, like no-one had done it before. I love the part in the documentary where the guy stops mid-interview when his mate ollies a 3 set.
I found it so interesting. Check it out!
