Skateistan opens 2nd skatepark in Afghanistan

Skateistan has proven that the power of skateboarding can be a successful tool for youth development and education in Afghanistan and elsewhere. Due to the success at the first project site in Kabul, Skateistan has now turned its attention to the fourth largest city in Afghanistan, Mazar-e-Sharif.

Located in the North of Afghanistan, Skateistan Mazar-e-Sharif is almost three times the size of Skateistan Kabul, and aims to bring skateboarding and arts-based education to many more young Afghans starting in Spring 2013.
