Helmet donation and skating

Amazing first visit back to the Dili skatepark since Timor Skate officially formed! Dropped off a stack of helmets donated by the legends at Globe Industries (many thanks to Mark Godfrey for arranging them), and skated with the locals till we could no longer see our griptape in the darkness. Given the brutal daytime heat, the evening’s the best time for a skate, and every minute of light is well used.

I was a little lazy with the camera so only captured the older crew, but was psyched to see so many young girls and boys making the most of the current park. Can only imagine how much a new park will strengthen their already established skate community, and what an asset it will be for Ba Futuru, the fantastic neighbouring youth-focussed NGO.
