INTRODUCING: BRAILLE SKATEBOARDING RUSSIA
Skateboarding started in Russia in the 1970s with a few boards smuggled into the Soviet Union from trips made abroad. The sport has grown in popularity since 1988 when two reporters from Thrasher Magazine visited and took photos of skaters in front of a Lenin mural. Since the lifting of censorship and the fall of communism skateboarding has gone from a small niche pastime to a general youth culture activity.
Notable Russian skaters include:
Kiril Krobkoff of Absurd Skateboards
Lyon has for a long time been considered France’s skateboarding capital. It is from here that talents such as Jérémie Daclin and JB Gillet emerged, and Lyon is also home to Cliché Skateboards, Antiz Skateboards, Blaze Supply, and more recently, Diligent Skateboards. Lyon truly is a breeding ground for the French skate culture. For winter sessions, there is the Gerland skatepark. Other notable French skaters Lucas Puig and Bastien Alabanzi.
