The Kroksbäck Skatepark was originally built in Malmö Sweden for the Vans Park Series World Championship final in 2016. Once the event was over, a group of local kids picked up skateboarding for the first time and have made the skatepark their second home. Here, Chris Pfanner tells the story about that community and the power of skateboarding.
