Kushineta is a skateboard pioneer start-up based in Addis Ababa and also involved in building the local skateboard scene through new skateparks and networking. Kushineta Skateboard Manufacturing PLC was founded in 2019 by four passionate skateboarders. They are the first licensed Ethiopian manufacturer of skateboards, skateboarding apparel and streetwear (manufactured locally) for the young local skate community. Besides manufacturing boards, apparel and leather products they also provide public and private skateboarding lessons.
