Hauser & Wirth + The Skateroom present Paul and Damon McCarthy PROPO Skateboards

The Skateroom and Paul and Damon McCarthy are aiming to finance the building of Skateistan’s first skate school in Johannesburg, which will help bridge socio-economic differences through skateboarding and educational activities amongst the youth of the city and its suburbs.

Paul McCarthy, Paul McCarthy/Damon McCarthy ‘McCarthy PROPO Skateboards Full Set of 10’

Skateistan began as a grassroots ‘Sport for Development’ project on the streets of Kabul in 2007, and is the brainchild of professional skateboarder, Oliver Percovich. It is now an award-winning, international NGO with projects in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa, and is the first international development initiative to combine skateboarding with educational outcomes. Skateistan believes that when the youth come together to skateboard and play, they forge bonds that transcend social barriers, and the charity provides safe places for this to happen in otherwise war torn and underprivileged communities.

Each of the remaining 215 editions per PROPO has the artist’s signature printed on the back of the skateboard and each is hand-numbered.
