Switch Sessions Mount Hawke

This month I headed down to Cornwall for a weekend to attend the 2nd Switch Session at Mount Hawke. Switch is a monthly girls session held at the skatepark, there was a luanch back in November, but unfortunately i couldn't make that one.

Anyway, this time I got to skate a bit but also coached a few girls that were trying out skateboarding either for the first time or just wanted some advice. The crew were rad and came on strong in the couple of hours we had :)

For more info on the Cornwall Girls skate scene and for the Mount Hawke Switch sessions check out the Girls Skate Fal FB page

Here is a little edit of me skating the park...

I also managed to stop by the DC Showroom on the way back... Sick BOWL!!!!

Skateboard Coaching - Brighton Girls Workshops

This summer I got to work on a great programme delivering skate workshops to girls at Hove Lagoon Skatepark. We did two 6 week courses and had over 20 girls / women taking part. The girls really came on throughout the course and each was competent riding their skateboards around the park and going down banks.

During the course Olivia Bohac came down and shot some photos of the lessons in action! There are loads of great shots on her blog here http://oliviabohacphotography.tumblr.com/post/31731640809/brighton-skate-jam-continued
