Red Bull‘s latest video series, ‘Skate Tales,’ is a six-part exploration of skateboarding’s underground element, hosted by famous outlier Madars Apse. The series continues with its fourth episode, as Apse explores Ethiopia’s emerging skate scene, with its humble beginnings in a parking lot Addis Adaba. By speaking with Henok Yetbarek, Michael Baheru, Ruel Desta, Babure ‘Babu G’ Teferi, Yeabkal Abraham, Yared Gobezie, JT Rhoades, and Sean Stromsoe, Apse learns exactly how this impressive grassroots DIY movement developed in one of the world’s oldest countries. Watch the video above!
Red Bull will be releasing a new episode monthly thru September—see below for schedule—but you can watch the remaining two entries now at Red Bull TV!
