Summer holiday action at Sanctuary Point Skate Park

Skate Park workshop

Local young people have shown some serious skate skills at Sanctuary Point Skate Park these school holidays.

On Saturday, 14th January, over 50 young people flocked to Sanctuary Point Skate Park, affectionately dubbed Sanga Bowl by locals, to participate in workshops and scooter/skateboard jam sessions run by Totem Skateboarding.

The Firefly Team were thrilled to bring this event to the community and host a BBQ lunch and activities relating to the Sanctuary Point Skate Park mural project and current Skate Park Survey.

“It was amazing seeing so many locals enjoying our skate park”, said Christine, Community Connector at Firefly, on Saturday.

“I was blown away by how many talented young skaters we have. The highlight of the day for me was the Jam Session; we had beginners, intermediates and experienced board riders doing some amazing aerials. I loved how the more experienced board riders like Nathan and Lachie encouraged the younger riders”, said Christine.

It was encouraging to hear that some of the older riders had positive things to say about the younger skaters having a go at the skate park. The Firefly Team also heard from parents who were excited about the event and welcomed more in future.

The Firefly team would like to thank local professional photographer Brad Sissins for the cool pics from the event.

Don’t forget to take part in the Skate Park Mural Survey for a chance of up to $450 in prizes. THIS SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED.
