Egyptian Skateboarding: Featuring Kyle Matthew Hamilton

10 Mar

SURE Skateboards instructor and Shut Skateboards Pro Team rider, Kyle Hamilton shares a video and some thoughts during his recent trip to Egypt

Video Published on Mar 6, 2016
“While performing in an international theatre show, the cast and myself had the pleasure of exploring Giza, Egypt. During a day of visiting the local attractions, I took the opportunity to use my skills as a professional skateboarder to skate around parts of the city. As I was skating during the downtime of visiting a papyrus museum, a large group of local children approached me, with overwhelming interest and curiosity. They were intrigued and obviously itching to see what this board with four wheels was. After briefly talking with our tour guide, I was informed that there was zero skateboarding culture in Egypt and that none of them had ever witnessed a skateboard. Immediately, without myself knowing a lick of the Arabic language and not a single child in this large group knowing any English, we forged a beautiful friendship as I took time to teach and allow them to experience the magic that is skateboarding. Every one of them beamed with excitement, each time they stood on my board. Out of all the children I’ve ever taught skateboarding to, these children were the most passionate and endearing group I’ve ever come across. We finally ended our impromptu skateboard lesson, with such heavy hearts and admiration towards one another. How wonderful it is that cultures can intertwine over something as simple as a toy! I love skateboarding. :)”
