Re: The Solomon Islands Skateboarding Scene

I was recently in the Solomon Islands on a UN agriculture development photo mission.  While walking around Honiara one afternoon, I ran into a group of local skaters.  Since I was on official business I didn't have my skateboard with me, but I stopped to talk to them and shoot some photos.

The result is this short piece on Re:News about the skateboarding scene in Honiara.

The Solomon Islands skateboarding scene
Auckland-based photographer Todd Henry travelled to the Solomons and met with some of the small but dedicated skateboarding community in the capital, Honiara.
