The Very Best - Makes A King (2015)

We collaborated with our friends The Very Best, a half Swedish, half Malawian afrobeat duo, on this video for the title track of their album Makes A King. Watch the crew skate the serene streets of Awassa and push down Langano highways to Addis Ababa- the home of Ethiopia Skate. With youth fearlessly powersliding steep hills and flying off ledges in Piassa, the future of street skateboarding in Ethiopia is bright.
