“Whatever position you achieve, you must be happy…because you see progress. And, if you have another opportunity or trip— you know you can do it.” —Sbusiso Sbisi, 15 years old, skateboard competition winner
Hidden within rural Durban, South Africa in the Valley of a Thousand Hills, a secret spot for young shredders is growing. Indigo Skate Camp is empowering the local Zulu villagers to learn and grow through the language of skateboarding and opening opportunities for them to experience what lies on the other side of the hill.

So wonderful. A simple sport bringing so much joy, pride and happiness to kids who have little. I remember skateboarding as a kid on boards that Dad made using old roller skates for the wheels. Something about rolling down that hill by our house that made us happy and proud that we managed to stay on the skateboard all the way down. Nothing compared to the sport of today. I wouldn’t have been that brave.
