Sk8boarding Hangout - December 2009
We have now had five sessions in total for our skateboard hangout programme. With numbers ranging from 10-30 young people. Skateboards and helmets have been sponsored by Kingpin for keen skaters to participate in the programme along with more safety gear from Wairoa Youth Services Trust. We have had skilled skaters come down to the skate bowl to show off a few moves to the youth and assist them with some skills.
Aan Hoek a valued member/teacher within our community took time out to attend one of our sessions. The youth were quiet responsive to him once they seen him rip up the park. The teacher-student barrier was broken down and they all had a good time. We have had positive feed back from parents saying "they enjoy bringing their children to the bowl knowing that they are safe and having fun!"
