For the last couple of years, ‘Skateboarding in India / Tripura has been working on an idea, where everybody would pitch in a hundred bucks and go for a trip over the weekend. The purpose was to film and upload videos which would attract and motivate everyone watching it to try skateboarding! These videos were marked as – ‘SKATE WEEKENDS’.

The Impact of Skateboarding on the Youth

“Skateboarding has made a huge impact on the youths lives and has given them something to live for and look forward to.” Once they start skateboarding, most youngsters feel like they are a part of a massive culture. A community so huge and powerful, that now people could recognize them and encourage them to do what they do. It’s undoubtedly enjoyable, and gets more and more exciting as the days roll by.

“When you start skateboarding, you bring a lot of good things to your plate.  You can change and inspire people to try new things and styles just by performing a single trick! And this sort of motivation is what most people need.”
