We're super stoked to host another skateboarding workshop and jam.

About the Event
This time we'll be heading to Griffith Skatepark.

The day includes a beginner workshop, intermediate workshop and an open skate jam!

The skate workshops includes all equipment and focuses on developing and improving skate skills and building confidence. 

The workshops will include:
- The correct standing techniques 
- The correct stopping techniques
- How to control the board 
- How to make safe decisions while skateboarding
- Skatepark navigation and etiquette
- Some basic tricks and skateboard skills

Following the end of the workshops we will be running an open ability and ages skate jam. The skate jam is a non-competitive skate session designed to allow participants to showcase their skills and skate together.

2:00PM to 3:00PM Beginner Workshop
3:00PM to 4:00PM Intermediate Workshop
4:00PM to 5:00PM Open Skate Jam

*The skate jam is a non-competitive skating session which gives skaters a chance to showcase their skills

How do I know which workshop to register for?
A. Our beginner workshops are designed for those that want to learn or get more comfortable with standing on a skateboarding, pushing or riding around and turning their board. Our intermediate workshop is more focused towards those that are comfortable skating on their skateboard, wants to learn some basic level tricks or practice going down ramps at the skatepark. We ask you to only register for the workshop that is suitable for your ability. That way the workshops are run to cater for everyone and nobody gets left behind.

Q. Is there a minimum or maximum age requirement to enter the event?
A. Yes, the participant must be 5 years and there's no maximum age.

Q. What do I need to bring into the event?
A. We supply all necessary equipment for our events (skateboard, helmet and pads). Feel free to bring along your own board or helmet so the coaches can do a quick safety check!

Q. What do I do if I have registered for an event and can't make it anymore?
A. If you have registered for an event and can't make it anymore, we ask you to cancel your ticket. We often sell out and people are then put onto waitlists. If you cancel your ticket it means someone else can come to the event. If you are having difficulty cancelling your ticket please contact us at

Q. How about if it looks like rain?
A. If it looks like it's going to rain, you will be sent an event update email as soon as possible. Sorry, but we can't skate in the rain!

Q. How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
A. You can email
