Local girl’s club Future Dreamers, together with Byron Bay Skateboard School, held a free holiday skateboarding workshop last Wednesday.
The workshop was for girls of all skill levels and aimed to advance the girls’ skating skills, improve their balance and have the girls coasting through the school holidays with good vibes and street cred, Future Dreamers chief executive Catherine Hardman said.
‘We will have our first Future Dreamers Girls Skate Crew,’ she said.
The creator of Byron Bay Skateboard School Flavio Biehl believes whether it’s your first time on a skateboard or you’re an advanced skater, you will always learn more and achieve results faster after a lesson or two.
‘We had an absolute ball and I am looking forward to the next one,’ he said.
‘Improving your skateboarding technique in a safe learning environment builds confidence and makes the sport much easier and more enjoyable.
‘The girls had a go at both short and longboarding,’ he said.
Future Dreamers is holding a different FREE school holiday workshop nearly every day of the school holidays. The workshops are open to all girls aged 12–25.
‘Future Dreamers is the ultimate girl gang that supports girls to be themselves, try out new things, and live healthy, active lives,’ Hardman said.
