From 2/28/2022 New Crete and cool shit in Ecuador!
from @wondersaroundtheworldorg Puerto Engabao is a rural beach town famous for surfing - located in Playas, Guayas, in Southern Ecuador. We been there last year to build a miniramp and let the seed grow.
Ecuador has a skate scene, but it is largely upper-class people from the cities that can afford the equipment and all the good parks are mainly private. On top of that, most of Engabao’s inhabitants cannot even afford to travel. A big part of the population is indigenous, facing hardship and often left out by the official government.
Despite the hardship, most kids in Engabao surf, and many now also skate, thanks to our local partner @engabaosurfclub who gives lessons to the children in town and secures that the impoverished kids also have access to boards.
With the help of @theskateroom , @la_bif_skatepark , @miketotemsk8chamrousse , @freespirithostelec and all the people they donate on our crowdfunding, we will extend and complete Miranda Skatepark with and for the local youth. Ultimately the skatepark will be a part of a bigger public park that will host a range of accessible and engaging activities for the local youth.
Thanks to @engabao_comunaancestral and @municipioplayas for providing the land and @surfengabao for accommodation and paper/political work. Skatepark design by @tulfuts with love !
