Valley Of A Thousand Hills: Durban’s secret shredders

Valley Of A Thousand Hills: Durban’s secret shredders

“We are skateboarders because we want to live a life which is good and awesome.”

 

Hidden within rural Durban, South Africa, is the Valley Of  A Thousand Hills, a secret spot for young shredders, who can come here to forget their everyday lives.

Here, Indigo Skate Camp (set up by South African pro skater Dallas Oberholzer) is empowering the local Zulu villagers to learn and grow via skateboarding.

Alongside skateboarding, the programme teaches self-respect, health and safety, art and music; supports the kids’ formal education and aims to tackle the disconnection of the area’s young people from the rest of the country.

This awesome short film is brought to us by Jess Colquhoun and Huck Magazine – enjoy!
