This workshop is for skaters who are confident in skating on flat ground and want to make the transition to the skate park, and new park skaters who are still working on the basics. Get that first drop-in! Skaters should be able to skate in control, stop and fall safely. The session will also include an off-skate warm-up with stretches and exercises to help get you ready for the park and avoid injury.
