Indigo Skate Camp in Inanda, South Africa:
The benefits of the camp have been far reaching. The youngsters from the isolated village of Isithumba have discovered that, through this sport, they can be part of something bigger. "They realise they can be part of the international sub-culture of skateboarding and feel connected to a bigger family than that of their usual day-to-day experience," explains [Indigo founder Dallas Oberholzer]. It has opened doors to the local youths who network with the skateboarders visiting the camp. "There is a connection that transcends the barriers of language and allows everyone to share in their skills and their passion," he claims.
