I’m not a skateboarder, but I somehow have become immersed into its culture
and especially taken in by the skateboarding scene in Cuba. The skaters’ attitudes and lifestyle inspire me. It sounds ludicrous when I tell people about my experience, but I am convinced it’s the simple life of the skateboarders that is revolutionizing an island filled with so many barriers and vulnerabilities. I truly believe that it’s these kids and the global supporters within the skateboard community over the past few years that have contributed to the sudden interest in the country and opening minds and borders. As someone said to me, the one thing the government can’t take away from you is the freedom of mobility. CONCRETEWAVEMAGAZINE.COM | 47
