Zenit Skateboard Club was founded in October 2022 in the city of Visoko, Bosnia and Herzegovina. We are a nonprofit and nongovernmental organization. Our goal is to spread skateboarding all over the country, host skateboard workshops and events and afford future generations the opportunities we did not have.
I had to leave BiH during Covid and I ended up in a huge steel company in Austria. My tasks there were welding, cutting, and drilling all kinds of steel. After a month of working in this company, I realized that too many leftovers were thrown away, which could be used for making skate obstacles like ledges, kickers, etc. So I started collecting all these leftovers and managed to transport them to BiH. Here I had time to weld all the stuff together and create a portable skate park. I created three levels of obstacles: for beginners (perfect for the workshops), basic obstacles, and obstacles for advanced skaters. All obstacles fit in a van (VW T4), which allows us to go all over the country to spread skateboarding.
A local steel company here in Visoko liked the idea of spreading skateboard culture all over the country. They hooked me up with some leftovers and after a small talk and a cup of coffee, one of the workers cut some leftovers in pieces I needed to weld another ledge and two small kickers. Thanx, we really appreciate it.
