Freedom Skatepark: How You Can Support the Creation of Accra's First Skatepark | Urban Limitrophe Podcast | | #podcast #Africancities #urban #cities #skateboarding

The Freedom Skatepark is on track to be the first skatepark in Accra, Ghana. This project is spearheaded by Surf Ghana, a non-profit based in Accra that uses board sports to empower youth across the country.  

With the skatepark and accompanying amenities, Surf Ghana hopes to create not only a safe space but an economic and community hub that will offer a place for the youth of Accra to play, work, learn, and engage with their peers and the broader community. 
But don't just take my word for it, watch this video below.

While the project is set to launch in 2021, the organization is still fundraising for the construction costs of the skatepark. Here are a few ways that you can help them achieve their goal of creating Accra's first skatepark.

Shop the Capsule Collection

Surf Ghana has teamed up with the two major clothing brands Off-White and Daily Paper to develop an exclusive capsule collection. The items are available on and all proceeds from the purchase go directly to supporting the construction of the Freedom Skate Park. 

Make sure to check it out before it is all sold out!

Shop Surf Ghana's Merch

Surf Ghana has teamed up with local artists and designers to provide a series of stickers, posters, T-shirts, bags, and yes, skateboards, that you can purchase. All of the proceeds go towards funding the creation of the skatepark, so make sure to check it out by clicking here
