In the remote town of Ltyentye Apurte (Santa Teresa) local Traditional Owner Nicky Hayes is the Northern Territory’s first qualified indigenous skateboard instructor, teaching children in the small community how to skate as a form of recreation and fun.

Nick has crowd funded to get the kids of Santa Teresa a skating tour in hopes of giving the young ones an opportunity to experience new things, Nick says that the kids are really excited for the skating tour.

Nick has started his own skating brand, Spinifex Skateboards, and hopes to support any of his community mob's skating through sponsorship.
