The Adventures Of Sweet Lime. 4 year old Holy Stoked skate school attendee Sweet Lime caught my eye as the perfect representative for the skate school for one of the short documentaries im working on for the India trip. This young, outgoing, man like child bares the world on his shoulders and attacks the skatepark with confidence only usually gained after 15 years on board. He lives within 100 meters of the skatepark in this tiny tent which houses his mother who works as a maid in a local hotel, his father a stone mason, his uncle and his grandfather. With only 1 single bed inside Im guessing the sleeping arrangements are not like the hotel his mother works in.
His progression throughout the week on board and book improved out of sight and was a right laugh in front of the lens of the camera. I ended up spending most hours of the day with Sweet Lime to try and capture the tough way of life him and his friends endure on a day to day basis and how the opening of the park has impacted on their lives.
