Skateboarding is back again! Open to all age groups ...

Skateboarding is an action sport (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Action_sport) which involves riding and performing tricks using a skateboard (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skateboard). Skateboarding has been shaped and influenced by many skateboarders throughout the years

With the evolution of skateparks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skatepark) and ramp skating, the skateboard began to change.

This session will introduce you to skateboarding for beginners while those who are more comfortable with the board can learn new tricks.

Some of the basic tricks are two-dimensional freestyle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freestyle_skateboarding) manoeuvre like riding on only two wheels ("wheelie" or "manual"), spinning only on the back wheels (a "pivot"), high jumping over a bar and landing on the board again, also known as a "hippie jump", long jumping from one board to another, (often over small barrels or fearless teenagers), or slalom.

Please come in comfortable clothes and flat shoes. (canvas shoes will do. Sport shoes might not be very comfortable)

Please be on time and No Shows will be strictly not entertained.
