“It wasn’t only the first Saturday of 2014 but for us it was also a Confusion Day. We ended the day with a superb contest and most of all we had fun! Thankfully, we had no “hall of meat”, no one got injured although we did break one skateboard deck. This was the Tanzania Skateboarding Contest sponsored by Confusion Magazine and other associates, plus friends and donors. It involved kids between seven years to sixteen years old. They battled to show what they really can do! Joyce won for the first time in the second group among three groups. We thank you all and keep reading Confusion Magazine to support DIY skate projects around the world.” – Argon Miracle
