About ASF

With only a handful of athletes, ASF started its work in late 2017. People who suffered from war, as well as people who wanted to bring change to society’s thoughts, were joining ASF. Ultimately to change the world’s perspective towards Afghanistan.

In time ASF has developed a strong influence on sports development in the country. Snowboarding is one of the fastest-growing and most famous sports among Afghans.

In 2020 ASF won their first international medals from Pakistan (1 Silver and 4 Bronze).
ASF is now looking for international achievements in the future.

AFGHANISTAN: Summer Training Session

On October 2nd 10 young riders from Afghanistan went for a summer training session to Reg Rawan valley in Kapisa. Lacking snow, the team made the most out of what they were given. They took some laps in the sand to get ready for the winter games. The youngsters enjoyed being back on board after a year without training.

While sandboarding is a new chance to prepare for the winter season in Afghanistan, the sport is very popular in the USA, Canada, and especially some Arab countries already.
