If you grow up in a place plagued by crime and unemployment, like inner-city Johannesburg, you might think your fate is already mapped out for you. But a skateboarding crew is aiming to change all that.

DW’s Gaia Manco went to meet Ayanda at the Troyeville skate park in Johannesburg, to discover what skateboarding is able to teach about life in a challenging environment.
