Last Saturday was World Autism Awareness Day and the perfect opportunity for etnies, Autism Speaks and the A.skate Foundation to have a full day of free skate clinics for kids on the autism spectrum. With the help of more than 40 volunteers, including etnies team riders Jose Rojo, Kyle Leeper, Devine Calloway, Kyle Loza, Nathan Williams and Ashley Charles, 80 children of all ages made it out to the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest for one-on-one skateboarding lessons. Whether knowingly or not, we've all found skateboarding to be a unique social outlet and to share that, especially with kids who often struggle with social interaction, is something you can't help but smile at. Seriously, watch the video and when it's done, check your face... You'll be smiling.
