A small comp went down today at Whitley Bay's Panama Skatepark. It was run by the council and is the first of a series of comps going down over the next 3 weeks. Here is some more information from the council about it:
You maybe aware that we will be having a number of informal Skate/BMX best trick or style sessions at North Tyneside’s Skateparks over the summer school holidays. Fellow Skaters and BMX riders will be on the look out for the best trick or style or for those who can do a number of easy to medium Skate and BMX tricks depending on experience.
There will be some prizes at each of the sessions that are part of the Widening Horizons Sport North Tyneside project. A responsible adult over the age of 16 years old must accompany children under 8 years old. Each session will last for two hours and will be dependent on the weather.
The sessions are informal and a chance for Skaters and BMX riders to show off their skill, see how others do tricks and have some fun. Please see the programme of sessions that will be held at various times. Please note that Panama Skatepark is in on the Links at Whitley Bay.
The first sessions are
Dudley Skatepark Tuesday 3 August from 2 to 4 pm
