Rollerblading on the Waterfront

Tomorrows weather is looking very promising, so while it might be a little cool there won't be much wind and it'll be great for a skate!

Get some skates on your feet and head down to the waterfront for an Adventure Wellington skating session. We'll start at Fergs Kayaks, hire rollerblades if you need them, and then head off. We might try going to the stadium this time, try out the ramp - good to practice your downhill technique and stopping ability!  Then we'll go towards Oriental Bay and then back again, a relatively easy and mostly flat trip, with plenty of stops along the way to chat and admire the views.

Chicago bar by Fergs is the usual stop for an after-skate drink and snacks!

Cost: $20 to hire rollerblades and pads from Fergs for 2 hours. Free if you bring your own!

What to bring: Photo ID to hire skates,comfortable clothes/layers, rollerblades or skates if you have them, water.

Difficulty Level: Depends on your skating ability. There is plenty of room to practice for beginners and we'll give you a few tips to start you off. Beginners normally stay close to Fergs until you can roll, stop and turn comfortably.

No-show policy:The regular no-show policy applies to this event. See the group rules.

DISCLAIMER: Whilst every possible assistance will be offered, Adventure Wellington Trust, the Trustees, Event Organisers/hosts and members cannot be held responsible for any accident, injuries or losses sustained leading up to, during, or after an event.

    Normally I would be up for rollerblading in a heartbeat, but have been struck down with illness so won't be able to attend. Please let me know if anymore rollerblading events come up.
