Asante – Skateboarding in Nairobi, Kenya

I was asked if i would be down to help build the first skatepark in East Africa – Nairobi, Kenya for a project called Shangilia, with the condition that I had to make the decision quickly. After a short while, I called him back and said yes, unsure of what I was getting myself into. However, upon arriving and meeting the locals, I was fascinated by the small but strong skate scene in Nairobi. I started interviewing some of the locals and making some shots with my 8mm camera.
