Push The Prom

  • Push The Prom 2015

    International Go Skate Day is on Sunday the 21st June and what a way to get out and celebrate all things skate by taking part in the second ever “Push the Prom” skateboarding event down in Brighton by GirlsSkate UK in association with Lucy Adams and Brighton and Hove Skatepark Association!

    Push the Prom kicks off at 10am down at The Level, it’s totally free and for everyone! There will be some girls only skate lessons with Lucy Adams, followed by the mini ramp jam comp before the push along the Promenade to Hove Lagoon skate park beings!

    We had a quick chat with Lucy to find out why girls should give skating a go.

    “Everyone was a beginner once! When I first tried skateboarding I found it really hard but quite quickly I found I was getting more confident at pushing along and making turns- then I got hooked! Skateboarding doesn't have rules and so you can learn to do whatever you want and whatever makes you feel good. There's loads of support out there if you're a female that wants to get into skating, like the girlskateuk.com site and GirlsSkateUK Facebook. The internet has loads of info with how to guides and the potential to link you with other girls nearby.“

    There are even drinks afterwards if you’re 18+ at the Big Beach Café by Hove Lagoon.

    It’s definitely worth getting involved and what’s so great about the skate community is everyone is willing to help each other to get over that initial hurdle that you might have. Whether you’re starting out for the very first time or trying to perfect a certain trick, its a nice community to be involved in.

    No equipment, no problem.. Its free equipment hire! and make sure you use the hashtag #pushtheprom2015 to share your footage!

    Take a look at the video from last year and stick the date in your diary!
