We’re going to be sponsoring a skate & bmx weekend planned for girls only at the end of May (short notice but if you can make it it will be well worth the journey!!)
It will be held between 25th-26th May at Wuppertal’s (Germany) indoor skate park called Wicked Woods.
There will be skate and BMX workshops, a best trick comp, video sessions and a sleepover…which probably doesn’t involve any sleep…
It’s going to be good fun, if you want to head along register at www.xsportsisters.de
If you are in the London area this weekend, remember to head down to Southbank to show your support towards saving The Undercroft. Click HERE for further info.
It’s that Girl Skate Jam time again!!
Pioneer Skate Park will play host to the 12th annual event on Saturday 29th June between 1-6pm. Rubicon will again be putting up a cash prize for the sponsored comp, Michelle Rushbrooke and Nikita will be cooking up a feast with their annual infamous Girl Skate Jam BBQ (catering for meaties, veggies and vegans alike). Neon Stash will be organising some tie dye tee-shirt action with a pop up dye session, other festivities are currently being organised (obviously sun has already been ordered to cater for this!).
The day will start with a 2 hour jam for all ladies with a board, this will run between 1-3pm. Basically if you’re not into competing you will get a good chance to have a roll around the park with everyone else with no pressure. This will be followed by the Under 18′s comp, the Over 18′s comp and Miniramp jam. The day will be rounded off as always with the Sponsored comp (there will be some new faces this year!).
Big thanks in advance to the sponsors for their continued support with this annual event: Rogue, Death, DC, Nikita, Neon Stash, Lakai, Animal, Expression Riders, Royal, Cooler, Rubicon and obviously Pioneer for giving up the park for the day!
