The Uganda Skateboard Union, Ask for help to people who can help in order to rebuild our first half-pipe which was destroyed by the heavy rainfall which was raining almost every day and then. These first half pipe was constructed in 2005 in December by a South African friend of Jack called Sheal Swart. the ways how we constructed it was not in good construction because we were lacking help and on top of that, No one was knowing what we were trying to build and so many people new that we where constructing a house of a Crocodile! Yeah,they saw two slide shapes were the animal is going to be use for sun bath!
So,that why we like to rebuild it back because, it brought a light of skateboarding in Uganda. And right now, see what is the out come of that First half-pipe!Yet it was destroyed,kids us to use it but now is totally completely down! poor construction led it to collapse easily.Faruq is very very tough in training hand-plants in all the ways as you can see him.Young Gerald he is also improving on his tricks in order to have a good position in the competitions of next year coming. The Ugandan Champion in Skateboarding is Douglas Mwesigwa, when he is mantaining some of his tricks in Kitintale Skate park. Next is Peter!Peter is chasing Douglas in some of the tricks and he is too good of jumping things during the training hours, like jerrycans, Tins,bricks and so many things to be jumped by Peter. He was the second in last few month back in 2009 in March.Next is Peter Junior!The second young Peter is also wants to be good like those ones. he also determine to compete with them as you can see.
