Toy Machine in Cuba

Boards for Bros Havana, Cuba
5608r0054772.jpg
A international group of skateboarders met in the forbidden land just South East of North America to promote skateboarding and provide donated skateboards to a place where they can not get them at all. Among many other things. We had representatives from Florida, Portland, New Jersey, Los Angeles, San Diego and Columbia.
These skateboarders came together to spread goodwill to fellow skateboards and kids in need who live in an oppressive environment.
