HYPEBEAST Dives into the Dubai Skate Scene

Skateboarding is on the rise in the Middle East
POSTEDBYCHRIS MORGAN

Usually, Hypebeast is a source of information on what’s going on in the world of fashion, particularly shoes. Not only skate shoes, either. However, recently they put their journalism hat on and dove into a story worth telling: The emerging skateboarding scene in Dubai. One of the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is a city known for its wealth and architecture. You know the Burj Khalifa, that gigantic skyscraper Tom Cruise climbs in one of the Mission: Impossible movies? That’s in Dubai. So are the skaters Wathek Allal, Maysam Faraj, and Karim Nassar. They talked to Hypebeast about trying to handle the head in Dubai (it’s the desert, after all) and much more about how skateboarding is growing in the UAE. Read all about it right here.

Got a cool new pair of shoes? Why not add a Dose shirt or hoodie into the mix as well?
