A international group of skateboarders met in the forbidden land just South East of North America to promote skateboarding and provide donated skateboards to a place where they can not get them at all. Among many other things. We had representatives from Florida, Portland, New Jersey, Los Angeles, San Diego and Columbia.
These skateboarders came together to spread goodwill to fellow skateboards and kids in need who live in an oppressive environment.

Went there, did that. Met up with friends and skateboards from all over the USA and the world to spread the good word of skateboarding and donate skateboards to the forbidden land. Are there skateboarders in Cuba. Sure as hell yes. Can they get skateboards? Sure as hell not. We took a shit load of equipment to donate and skated all over Habana with local kids.
