Join us on Saturday, July 13th, (after Skate Club) for this year's Prime Youth Skateboard Competition. It's going to be a great day filled with traditional skateboard competition vibes, but with a low pressure inclusive feel.

Don't be nervous

The event is for fun and it is the taking part that counts. The judges will be taking in to account personal abilities and your effort. It's all about "fun, taking part and getting the experience".

Great for parents

Fun for all the family. Come and cheer them along & celebrate their efforts. Café, Bar & refreshments all day long.
