The streets of Kabul were set into motion by Australian skateboarder Oliver Percovich, seven years ago, inattentive kicking it off into a gender revolution. His skateboard alurred the local kids that had never seen before device like this and also the girls.
In the center of Kabul lies an abandoned, Russian-era concrete curio- Mekroyan Fountain which makes up for the perfect place to skate at weekends discovered by Percovich, thus begining of the Skateistan has its date from 2007.
Percovich succed in creating a non-profit skate school in Afghanistan in 2009. The number doubles as now are two-one in Kabul, the other in Mazar-e-Sharif in the north, near the border with Uzbekistan. What he wants to achieve is the using of skateboard as a mean of commission in a country where disarray and conflicts prevail.
The kids join for fun and encounter with education.
