More than 270 young people took to Waverley’s skate parks last week to show off their skills at this summer’s #SkateWaverley events.

The free skate, BMX and scooter workshops, hosted by Waverley Borough Council, helped riders of all levels and abilities - aged seven to 16 - to take their skills to the next level. From starting out on the ramp as a total beginner, to perfecting much more complex tricks, all participants had a fantastic time at the workshops.

The events were held at Farnham (7 August), Cranleigh (8 August), Haslemere (10 August) and Godalming (11 August). Professional skaters, BMXers and scooter riders from King Ramps were on hand to give tuition, advice and perform the latest tricks, as well as judge the hotly contested competition.

The events were made possible thanks to our sponsors Places for People, Groundworks and Carriers for Causes.
