A basic skateboarding park in many parts of the world is nothing to write home about, but the construction of this Uganda-based park is very special. The construction and development of the project captured by Swiss photographer, Yann Gross, was part of his Kitintale Skate series.

The building material on hand for the skateboarding locals was very scarce, but with creativity and innovative thinking, they created ramps from brick and concrete.

The Kitintale Skate series photo documentary is a great reflection of the types of obstacles one can overcome when encouraged by a deep passion for a sport. This theory becomes even more poignant when you look at the related articles below.
