This week, we want to introduce everyone to Alice. Two years ago, Alice started visiting RampFest for our Beginner Skateboarding lessons... and to say she's come a long way is an understatement!
Seeing her amazing progression over the last couple of years, despite all the craziness of lockdowns, has been a huge highlight for the skate coaches & staff at RampFest - and today, we hope you can all get as stoked on her journey as we are.
School Term is about to kick off again, and we're excited to be getting started with another 8-week coaching program for Skate, Scooter and BMX!
At the end of this Term, we're planning to launch our first RampFest Progression Session too - this will be a new type of event that is all about achieving personal goals - not about competing with others. But more on this soon...
For now, we want to introduce our Coaches for Term 1 of Ramp School:
Colony BMX have been working hard at putting together the new Horizon Range of complete bikes and they've just landed in store!
The Horizon range is designed to be a light weight option for the younger riders - with specific geometry to suit. The whole range is also great value - coming in at $599.95 - much cheaper than the other alloy framed junior BMX bikes on the market.
If you're into Freestyle BMX, there is a good chance you've heard that it's making its Olympic Games debut in Tokyo 2020. This is pretty massive news for the sport - and for the athletes involved. The Olympics is the pinnacle of global sport - it's the largest sporting event in the world by a country mile - and now, alongside international sporting icons, we'll have Freestyle BMX Riders competing.
A common question we get asked at our coaching clinics is "why aren't we learning more tricks". Over the years, I've focused more and more on the core, basic skills in coaching programs - and the more we develop these, the more I've found that young riders can learn tricks faster and safer down the line.
Regularly, this means pulling people back from trying something - and saying "slow down, you're not there yet". This is now what our entire coaching method at Rampfest is built around.
Term 3 of 2019 has just kicked off and at Rampfest, we're pumped to be launching our new Ramp School Coaching Programs again. Each Term, we run an 8-week coaching course for Skateboarding, Scooter & BMX - and this term, we're launching a new structure around all our lessons.
A common concern we hear at Rampfest all the time is "Skate Parks are so dangerous!"... Well, today I want to help educate everyone about how to maximise your safety at your local skate park - for both parents and participants.
