Skateboarding to dissolve barriers between class, race, age and gender

SkatePal is a non-profit organisation that works with communities throughout Palestine to enhance the lives of young people and promote the benefits of skateboarding.

They are run by a committed team of local and international volunteers who, through teaching skate classes, building skateparks and providing equipment, are enabling an ever-growing number of Palestinian skaters to empower themselves and inspire the next generation of Palestinian youth.

Why Skateboarding?

Skateboarding is one of the most inclusive sports in the world. It instantly dissolves barriers between class, race, age and gender.

Skateboarding engages youth, relieves stress and helps to build confidence and form long lasting friendships.

Skateboarding isn’t hierarchical – it doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or a professional, a child or an adult.

Skateboarding is fun!
