The Cuban Skateboard Crisis

If you thought you had it hard not being able to afford a new deck, then spare a thought for skateboarders in Cuba.

Phil Brown’s latest documentary shows the difficulties faced by Cuban skateboarders, as there are no skateshops and trade blocks means mail ordering decks and hardware is banned. This means skaters are dependent on boards being brought in by friends from other countries, or fixing and repairing broken boards anyway they can.

The Cuban Skateboard Crisis is available to watch below, but please head over to to see if you can help in anyway and show your support.
