PRIME Sessions #05 | Girls Night -February
Prime Skatepark holds a girls skate night on the first Tuesday of every month from 7pm – 10pm. We offer a discounted rate of just £5 for the whole session to all female riders. The numbers and standard of skating from these girls just keeps rising! Take a look at the video above shot during the February event. The edit features plenty of happy riders and short mini sections from park regulars Evie Drummond & Kiah Allen.
We encourage girls of all ages and skill levels to come down and have some fun at the park! During girls night events all girls get full priority over every obstacle at the park. We encourage girls to come down any time they like but we put a particular focus on them during girls night. It’s a good opportunity for them to partake in an action packed, fun, and rewarding activity. As well as being able to meet and hang out with like minded people in a friendly and welcoming environment. Everybody who attends our skate nights always leaves with a smile on their face!
Tuition is available for girls of all experience levels so they can come and comfortably strengthen their abilities. Helmets must be worn by any rider under the age of 16 and are available for hire for just £2.
Below is a BBC interview shot recently at the park featuring team rider Stefani Nurding. The interview covers life as a female skater in the current UK scene, why she loves the sport, how it helps shape her identity and the stereotypes she has to overcome.
