Skate Park in Khempur village, Rajasthan
Desert Dolphin Skatepark was constructed as part of an international feature film releasing in cinemas worldwide in 2020. The skatepark was constructed by Mac Productions and 100 Ramps with the help of Indian and International volunteers, and skateboarding and acting workshops began in October 2018.
After filming completed in April 2019, the skatepark remains a free public use skatepark, with the aim of continuing the social impact such skateparks have on rural Indian villages. Desert Dolphin Skatepark is India’s largest and most advanced skatepark and has become the training ground for skaters all over India.
Over 5000 children in and around Khempur village, Rajasthan have been positively impacted by the introduction of skateboarding. At present approximately 50 children from surrounding villages attend daily for free training workshops at the park. With skateboarding entering the Olympics in 2020, and with no other park of this calibre and design in India, the Desert Dolphin skatepark is a training ground for future national and international champions.
