$7 Park fee.

Modern Skate Park is providing a special rate for all girls during this session that includes the two-hour session ($12 value for non members) and all rental protective gear and boards to borrow ($6 value).  This is a great price to skate this amazing park.

Even if you don’t know anything about skating, it’s ok.  This is the perfect place to start!

** All participants will need to have a completed waiver with Modern Skate Park.  If you already skate this park and have a waiver on file, you are good to go.  Girls 18 and over can sign the waiver at the event.  Girls under 18 will need a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian at the event or bring the signed and notarized waiver to the event.

“It’s awesome to watch these girls progress, find or already have a love for skating and feel like they fit in at a skatepark. Glad to be a part of it and excited on what’s to come.”

 

- Christiana Smith

 

Today this little girl came in with a penny board and she wanted to learn how to drop in really bad, she was only 9 and just started and didn’t really know that she would need a real board to do tricks and stuff so I let her use my board and she learned how to drop in.  She started on a bank ramp, then 3-foot quarter, then later on a bunch of us girls were skating and she was like “I wanna drop in on that” and pointed at the bigger 5-foot quarter and she went for it and got it.

She progressed faster than anyone I have ever helped, male or female, and she didn’t even own a real board.

 

 

She was such an inspiration to me, its crazy that a little girl just starting out can inspire me someone who has been skating for years to be the best I can be. Definitely the highlight of the sesh.
