We are SUPER excited to announce our first ever official event in celebration of International Go Skate Day next month in Association with Brighton & Hove Skateparks Association and supported by Brighton longboard Ladies. Titled ‘Push The Prom’, we plan on doing exactly that, gathering up an army of skaters to cruise along the Brighton Promenade with fun skate sessions either side!We will be kicking the day off at Hove Lagoon Skatepark where we will be giving skate lessons alongside Lovenskates very own Lucy Adams, the UK’s no.1 Female Skateboarder. Fun competitions will follow, with a prize giving shortly before heading off along the Promenade.
We will be continuing our celebrations at The Level Skate Park where we will have a bit of a skate and watch the other events that are going on. We’ll also be giving away prizes throughout the day to the girls we feel are really pushing themselves and having loads fun along the way, so make sure you get involved!
For those older ones, there will be an after party at Fortune Of War bar on the beach, with live music & a premiere of the Boardettes film, ‘She Shreds’ – Blurb below….
” A short film following UK professional skater, Lucy Adams as she teaches and introduces women of all ages to the world of skateboarding. Following Sportitave’s Brighton She Shredders as they gather each week to develop their skills, the film explores what it is about this adrenaline packed sport that gets you hooked for life”
