Skateboarding Around the Arabian Peninsula

The Visualtraveling Project takes us to the Middle East for some up close and personal views of skateboarding around the Arabian Peninsula in “The Edge of Arabia”. Directed by Patrik Wallner, “Edge” is a short skate film that juxtaposes the current turmoil in the Middle East to the peaceful and entertaining communal aspect of skateboarding. Skateboarders Walker Ryan, Gosha Konyshev, Laurence Keefe, Tobias Ulbrich, Michael Mackrodt visit cities like Jordan and Palestine and take to the streets to find whatever they can to use as a playground. Besides the gorgeous setting of the Trans-Siberian, the best part about the film is watching innocent bystanders become witness to incredible street skate tricks.
