Ethiopia Skate's Addis Ababa 'Skateboard Journey'

The latest video from Ethiopia Skate shows off a new crop of young skateboarders in Addis Ababa.


Back in November we reported on Addis Ababa's Ethiopia Skate, an organization aimed at promoting skateboarding across the nation with the goal of establishing Ethiopia's first permanent skate park. Founders Abenezer Temesgen and Sean Stromsoe's National Skateboard Campaign has already begun construction on a set of mobile mini ramps they plan to tour around the city for pop-up skate lessons. Over the weekend Ethiopia's #skatelife movement dropped another video showcasing its talented crop of young skaters. This time around we're taken along for the ride as the kids of Ethiopia Skate kickflip and ollie their way through Addis in a clip from Sean Stromsoe and Thom Estifanos. Watch the latest "Skateboard Journey" below and keep up with Ethiopia Skate on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
