Skateboarding in a Jellaba: When Tradition and Modern Life Activities Meet

Who said you can’t skateboard in a jellaba?

Yassine Boundouq, 21 years old, is a skater from Safi who wanted to create something original: skating in a jellaba. In the video, he demonstrates that the Moroccan culture does not contradict with modern sports activities such as skating.

He tries to make skating popular among Moroccans and show that it’s a sport that anybody can do. At the end, he mentions that skateboarding should be treated with more respect because it’s a sport just like any other.
