Dover SkateFest

Skatefest logo1 October 2022
Pencester Gardens, Dover

We are hosting a special event to celebrate the colourful, refurbished skate park in Pencester Gardens and to showcase our local talent.  The skate park has recently been repaired and painted in a colourful, jazzy design by our maintenance team. 

Please come along, whether you are a skater or not - we've got demos and music to keep you entertained!

10am - 12pm FREE Coaching sessions

Qualified coaches will be teaching the fundamentals of skateboarding including pushing, stopping and turning, basic tricks (pancake flip, strawberry milkshake etc.). There will be a demonstration followed by group work. Using some of the smaller mellow ramps in the skate park students will be shown how to pump up and down a transition and ride up along and down the fun boxes. The coaches will provide individual assistance based on skill level. After the session students should feel confident with riding a skateboard independently and have some basic tricks to go away and work on.
