Elemental Awareness Foundation (EA) teamed up with the Ethiopian Skateboard Park Project (ESPP) in their efforts to teach kids how to skateboard in Ethiopia. Through Element’s Changing lives through skateboarding program, EA was able to donate shoes and boards to help the ESPP accomplish their goals. They recently made a trip out to Ethiopia to visit the kids and build some ramps. The ultimate goal of the project is to build a Skate Park and community center in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia.

A portion of proceeds from all shoes and select skateboards benefit the Elemental Awareness Foundation. When you buy Element, you are helping make programs like this possible.
When DC’s Chris Ray was asked to be one of the 13 filmers to submit a part for TransWorld SKATEboarding‘s latest film, The Cinematographer Project, he naturally gravitated towards Element am Evan Smith. With Evan’s effortless style and unique approach and Ray Ray’s mastery of the angles, editing and HD, Evan’s part excerpted from the full length DVD is your most recent glimpse to how talented of a skateboarder Evan Smith really is.
The Cinematographer Project full length DVD, with 13 parts submitted by skateboarding’s greatest filmers, is available now at http://www.skateboarding.com, your local skateshop, or for download on iTunes.
