TAGHAZOUT, MOROCCO

The south Morrocan city of Taghazout was the perfect place for a community skatepark. With an already thriving surf culture and a growing demand for skateboarding, youngsters could sometimes be seen sharing just one skateboard between ten of them in the central square. Not only benefiting the youth of Taghazout and surrounding areas, the skatepark attracts visitors from all over the country and internationally. The public location overlooking the village and ocean couldn't have been a more fitting spot for the large skatepark, allowing boys and girls of all ages and backrounds to share the space breaking down social barriers together. More then 50 volunteer builders constructed the skatepark with the help of Make Life Skate Life and Levi's. A free skateboard loaner program has been installed in the skateparks and volunteer-led support is provided for beginners, ensuring a large number of users with free, safe, and equal access to use their skateparks.
