If you’ve been following us in recent months, it’s no secret that we hold free skate lessons open to the public on a weekly basis. It gives the opportunity for our more advanced skaters to engage with the young guns who are just starting out and hence creates mentors in the process. We rounded up our youth volunteers this past Sunday to teach several skaters some skateboarding basics and followed it up with a photo session with some of the guys. Check out all the content below for proof!

Our youth volunteer coaches have taken their students to every obstacle in the park in attempt to get them to learn how to drop in. No shoes? No problem.
It’s become a ritual to shoot some skate photos on Sunday following the skate clinic. Here’s Siphiwe Keshwa with a feeble grind.
