Skateboarding takes off in Cambodia

Help

Skateboarding has been part of youth culture for decades in many countries.

But in Cambodia, however, it has only arrived recently.

An organisation called Skatestan has just opened the country's first skate park, with the aim of helping current and former street children gain confidence through learning the new sport.

Produced by Guy De Launey, Rick Valenzuela and Sam Jam.
