Lorenzo get's to meet the new boarding-generation
Last week I got to meet up with the members of Skateboard Academy (SBA).
We took the opportunity to let two of our youngsters participate at the skate-camps of this summer. We have some footage of Gilles Dekoninck doing his first air/indy in Blankenberge. 👍💯 next step 👉 BACKFLIP 😄
The SBA organisation has an awesome indoor skatepark in Ghent where you can get your first (initiation)lessons.
Skateboarding is a challenging sport that requires some practice and perseverance to master the basic techniques. In addition to the pleasure of regularly skating together, the constructive series of lessons makes it possible to work more purposefully. Each participant receives a personal progression booklet and is individually guided to realise the goals that can be achieved for him / her. The lessons are developed to measure and can continue on our own locations or on the move.
The lessons can be arranged on request and flexible. The program is adapted to target group and location. A safe environment, sufficient space and a good skate surface are provided. Material (skateboards + protection) are included, extra skate equipment can be requested. We deliberately keep the groups small by providing enough qualified trainers so that we can accommodate level differences and keep it challenging for everyone! The group initiations can continue on the move or be scheduled in one of the partner (indoor) skate parks.
The lessons are always made just for they work with at that time and can be on there own location or somewhere else. The Skateboard Academy represents an ever increasing number of associations with a structured operation where you can go on a weekly basis for qualitative guidance. Look here for a club in your neighbourhood.
They also provide masterclasses; an intensive workshop for the beginner, intermediate or advanced skater. Maximum 5 participants per group, the most suitable accommodation and a specialised skateboard instructor. The development programs are per discipline and take into account the starting level of the skaters.
Thanks to SBA team for the invite, you guys are doing a great job!
