Ethiopia's first skate park

Skateboarding may be a relatively new sport in Ethiopia but it's growing in popularity and now the capital, Addis, is getting its first concrete skate park. Local youngsters have been helping with the construction. Yared Eyastu is a keen skater and one of the volunteers and Sean Stromsoe is one of Ethiopia Skate's organisers.
