The skateboards


The Skateroom has teamed up with André Saraiva – Mr. A. for a limited series of art editions on skateboard to support “Concrete Jungle Foundation” (CJF).


The sales profits will be donated to the NGO to help them build Angola’s very first skatepark in the capital city of Luanda as well as to implement a skateboarding program for local at-risk youth in the area.


Background: Angola, Luanda and Skateboarding

Following three decades of civil war, Angola has a life expectancy of 52,4 years, a median age of 16,1 and deeply rooted social inequalities. Despite all of this, the country has recently become a breeding ground for skateboarding, especially in its capital city of Luanda.

There are currently no designated areas for skateboarding in the whole country, let alone in Luanda. With a national population of 29 million, the Angola Skateboarding Union (ASU) has been seeking government support for the construction of a community skatepark for years, but so far without success.
