A Japanese Skater's Visit to Bangladesh
Jupepe Hirota, a skater from Japan came to visit Bangladesh. Whenever a skater visits a foreign country, they first search for a local skate shop so that they can meet local skaters. Hirota did the same and came to visit us at our skate shop. He spent 2 days with us, had some great skate sessions together, and taught locals how to skate.

Local Skaters Meetup
Being the very first skateshop in the country, always our aim was to help and grow the local community. We started working with the local community ever since we start our business. As part of the community and culture development on May 16, 2019, we arranged a local skaters meetup where we discussed how we can work together for the community and what we should do in the future to develop the culture. After the discussion, we had our iftar as it was Ramadan and we do a memorable skate session with so many talented skaters.
First Go Skateboarding Day
June 21 is the international Go Skateboarding Day. Every skaters and skater organization celebrates this day worldwide. For the first time in the history of Bangladesh, we celebrated Go Skateboarding Day in 2019. More than 50 skaters joined this event all over the country and our event got featured on the country’s most popular online magazine.

Nepal-Bangladesh Skate Exchange Program
By working for the community we met some other community builders around the world and one of them was “YUWA for Change”, a nonprofit organization working to develop the skateboarding culture in Nepal. We invited them to Bangladesh and 9 of their talented skaters came to visit Bangladesh. In this program, we have shared local cultures, skate lessons, and advice to build up a better community.
