When Castro dies, Miami will party like it’s 1959

Subvert Cuba and Fidel Castro skateboard

Believe it or not, that’s an actual CNN headline and not something I made up. With the news that Miami’s Cubans in exile are planning to celebrate the impending death of Fidel Castro in the Orange Bowl (WTF?) now is a good time to bring up the Subvert Cuba Project. Probably due to in part to our embargo, Cuban skaters are really, really hard up for gear. That’s hard to believe considering Rodney Mullen insists China makes the best skateboards. The Subvert Cuba Project is like a bizarro Berlin Airlift, transferring skate goods from Germany to Cuba. You can buy decks from which a part of the proceeds are donated, or you can send used gear. Now seems as good a place as any to mention that Cold War Skateboards has a Fidel Castro and John F. Kennedy model called the Detente 2, of which absolutely none of the profits are donated to Cuba or Ethiopia. Sorry, couldn’t resist a Dickies reference somewhere. Maybe when Fidel dies the Cubans will finally be able to get some decent skateboards. In the mean time, I don’t the Detente will make it past customs, and I’d hate to see someone imprisoned for riding a smart-assed American skateboard. [ Source: Kingpin Magazine ]
