About Me

Who are we/me?

My name is Abuga! I am a downhill skateboarder from Nairobi, Kenya. AFRICA BABY!

I started skating when I was at University (Leeds Uni, UK) as a means to get around, but over time it evolved into something more. I found myself enjoying the feeling of skating down hills and over time it snowballed into this love affair with downhill skateboarding.

But when I moved back home to Kenya I didn’t have anyone to share this passion with. So I started making blog posts and videos to stay connected with the international community, whilst simultaneously trying to build the Kenyan downhill skateboarding community.

Welcome to my blog 🙂

What’s in a name?

Well, Downhill – because downhill skating obvs and 254 because it’s the area code of Kenya. It’s a Kenyan thing to name social media pages and other things (254), it makes them easily identifiable.
