On the 50th anniversary of Castro and Che Guevara’s Cuban Revolution, “The Next Che” documents the little-known story of another revolution taking over Cuba; skateboarding. Skater/tattoo artist Che Pando, also known as the Godfather of Cuban Skateboarding, is the unofficial leader of a new movement in Cuba that seeks to teach kids how to use skateboarding to express themselves and deal with their day-to-day issues. The stories brought back to the States from the event prompt X Games gold medalist skateboarder Ryan Sheckler to take a trip to Cuba and see what all the fuss is about. And while all of the Cuban skaters are grateful for Ryan’s visit, it’s Ryan who walks away with real reward.
Other skaters involved are: Rick McCrank, Zered Basset, Quim Cardona, Ron Deily, Mike Anderson, Chris Nieratko, Bryce Kanights, Tod Swank, Steve Chalme, Ryan Clements, Rob Meronek, Barak Wiser & more
