Skateboarding For Hope Supported By DC Shoes Somerset West Recap

The second stop of the Skateboarding For Hope Supported By DC Shoes National Tour went down on Saturday, 23 April at Inspired 2 Become Skatepark in the beautiful Cape Town suburb of Somerset West (South Africa). Heaps of local skaters came out to show support and rip for their share of cash and product prizes.

Joined by the children of Bright Lights Children’s Home, our boy Enwin Gellant worked with the kids to teach them the basics of skateboarding; both on and off the board. Just how the basic components of skateboard like the deck, trucks, wheels & bearings work together, we as skateboarders form a support system for each other and always have each other’s backs. It was a great opportunity to have a passionate skater such as Enwin reach out to the kids and speak to them and educate them beyond only the act of skateboarding.
