The Next Che - Cuba Skate Revolution
On the 50th anniversary of Castro and Che Guevara’s Cuban Revolution, “The Next Che” documents the little-known story of another revolution taking over Cuba; skateboarding. Skater/tattoo artist Che Pando, also known as the Godfather of Cuban Skateboarding, is the unofficial leader of a new movement in Cuba that seeks to teach kids how to use skateboarding to express themselves and deal with their day-to-day issues. The stories brought back to the States from the event prompt X Games gold medalist skateboarder Ryan Sheckler to take a trip to Cuba and see what all the fuss is about. And while all of the Cuban skaters are grateful for Ryan’s visit, it’s Ryan who walks away with real reward.
A groundbreaking documentary helping the troubled local cuban skate community and raising international awareness through the invitation of some of the best skaters in the world.
With our last film production, surf/social documentary 'Surfing Favela', we helped raise 20K that went directly to the kids in the slum & helped them create an NGO, receive some more help from music star, surfer/singer Jack Johnson himself
We now need your help to finish filming this groundbreaking documentary/film, that will help the cuban community of skaters and hopefully plenty of other kids.
Transparency. We have raised some money from Red Bull & Fuel TV, but most of the other companies contacted cannot/don´t want to invest money for kids in Cuba (due to a long existing trade embargo from the USA to Cuba & lack of interest since most of them dont sell anything in the island).
Helping us finishing this new social project & documentary in forbidden Cuba will help us raise more international awareness & donations, as well as gathering support to the troubled cuban skater community and the people featured in our film directly once again. We count on you to give back to the lifestyle you love / admire & has given you some many happy moments.
Perhaps you are a philantropist with available funds, and not directly involved with this sport, but we guarantee that your contribution will make a HUGE difference. Cuba is such a cultural gem. If you become one of our top donators, we'll make sure we tailor the trip to Cuba to meet your expectations too.
For those into skating, the line up is huge: other top international skaters participating/supporting our project are: Zered Basset, Rick McCrank, The Tampa AM/PRO guys, Chris Nieratko, Bryce Kanights, Tod Swank, Scuba Steve, Mike Anderson, Ron Denis, and a whole bunch of others. Not to mention the top local talent!
Thanks for your time in reading this & support to The Next Skate Revolution. Pass the voice in any way you can.
