We sh!t you not. This is actaully happening.
There will also be a Mini Ramp on Cowley Road for the Carnival complete with an artifical beach n stuff.
As a result – Skate Coaching will NOT be happening on Sunday July 5th as we are fully overstretched with these events. It’s going to be an amazing weekend with some of THE BEST SKATEBOARDING IN THE WORLD happening right here in Oxford.
We’ll be hosting a number of Girls Only Skateboard Coaching events at the skatepark this summer.
If you’re a girl who is keen to try skateboarding for the first time, would like to improve or just find other ladies to skate with – this is for you. The park will be Ladies Only for the whole morning.
The girls from Rogue Skateboards will be coming down to supervise and offer advice and guidance. If you don’t have a board to hand we have skateboards and protective gear at the park for you to borrow.
The sessions are FREE and will run from 10 am until Midday on the following dates
Dry weather will be required to skate so if it’s looking a bit rainy please do check before travelling.
Free Skateboard coaching for 2015 recommences this Sunday April 12th and we’ll be running the sessions every Sunday Morning that the wonderful English permits.
Last years lessons were so popular that we struggled to keep up with the demand so we’ve had to change the programme a little to keep things running as smoothly as possible.
The key to this is making sure you guys TURN UP ON TIME!
We won’t be letting slackers just join in as this really slows down everyone’s progress. Sorry to sound mean but we want everyone to make the most of these lessons so being punctual is important.
We’ll now be running 2 sessions each Sunday Morning : a beginners session and an improvers session.
If you’re totally new to skateboarding and need to learn the absolute basics then this session is for you.
We’ll aim to give you a swift introduction on how to stand on a board, how to keep your balance and how to safely get around the skatepark.
The improvers sessions are for those who have a bit more experience on skateboard and would like to know how to make better use of the skatepark .
You’ll need to be able to coast along comfortably, forwards and backwards and be able to push and turn on the flat. We’ll help you develop your skills into riding the bowl, keeping up speed up around the park and show you the basics of ollies and street skating tricks.
The Lakai team popped in this summer and promptly destroyed the park.
Cheers to Olly Ross for the edit
Skate coaching is getting busier and busier so make sure you turn up ON TIME for your lesson so we can get you padded up.
Please please arrive 15 minutes before the sessions to keep them moving along nicely...more info here
