Skateboard workshop in Altenberge,

On the 15th of August we started our skateboard-workshop in Altenberge, Germany, in co-operation with RWE "Energiekarussell". Jochen Paus, (mayor of Altenberge), Franz-Josef Reinke (RWE) and Ingrid Menden (community Altenberge) opened the kickoff event. We are very excited to introduce 50 kids to the world of skateboarding: designing graphics for their decks, building ramps and last but not least learning some basic tricks.

skate-aid vs. school sports

In cooperation with the Wilhelm-Hittorf-Gymnasium / Münster, a skate-aid skateboard workshop for students and their “godchilds” took place at the Skaters Palace. Under the guidance of some instructors, everyone had fun skating and skate-aid founder and initiator Titus Dittmann told them about the history of skateboarding and the work of skate-aid. There was free ice-cream at the end of the session and everyone was exhausted but happy! Thanx to all the participants and see you next time!
