Brighton Skatefresh Day – 6th August 2011
August 1, 2011
It’s time to plan a day of skating by the sea! Each August Asha from Skatefresh invites you for a fun, free day of skating, chilling and seaside frollicks on the Brighton sea front. This year’s Brighton Skatefresh day is Saturday 6th August – this coming Saturday!
Skating starts at 1pm at the West Pier skate area (see map link below). There will be spots for slalom all day, general skating and some time set aside for dancing with some impromptu classes for sure. There will be a roller disco style set up and a slow gentle street skate along the seafront and back at 4pm. Skatefresh encourage picnics, refreshments and there are lots of shops and supermarkets close by and excellent Fish and Chips at the Regency.
Musical atmosphere will be supplied courtesy of Paul’s thumpers and a number of the LondonSkate & LFNS ASBOxes which will travel down for the day.
Buy your train tickets before the day at southern rail and you can get them as cheap as Â£4 a journey. Free parking at the Marina all day.
Asha hopes to see all the usual faces and representatives from Eastbourne and Camberley as well as the London crew. This is a rare opportunity for Skatefresh instructors and friends to have a whole day off, skating and not teaching and getting to know everyone better and welcoming more students (past and present) into the scene. The goal is also to show Brighton what a real skate scene is, as the local skating contingency is growing and will benefit from the encouragement of seeing so many good skaters in town.
Asha hopes you can make it and says “It’s always so much fun for me to have everyone down and share my gorgeous skate spot on the beach. Bring swimsuits, although [the lack of them] never stops the essential cool down swim. Great weather has been ordered once again!”
