What is Skateboarding?
Skateboarding is an internationally practiced sport that originated in California in the 1970’s. Since its birth it has spread across the world and it reached Uganda in 2005 for the very first time in East Africa. In countries around the globe skateboarding is practiced by people of all ages and international Competitions are being held on a regular basis. In the last few years Skate boarding’s international popularity has skyrocketed due to the televised X-Games. The Uganda Skateboard Union is the first skateboarding project in Uganda which brought the potential for Ugandans and other Countries of East Africa to teach Skateboarding. Douglas Mwesigwa from Uganda went to Tanzania to train the youth how to Skateboard. Skateboarding will help the teenagers of East Africa plus the same thing it does for youth around the globe; it gives them a new window for fun, it gives them a physical challenge, and it gives them a mental release from whatever problems they might be facing.
