“I heard about Learn to Skateboard Day from my local paper and thought it would be a good reason to get the kids out of the house. I wasn’t expecting the lessons to be so accessible to my kids who came to the event never having stepped on a skateboard. They had so much confidence leaving the event that I had to buy them boards right away so they could keep practicing. It’s really great to see how much this one event did to get my kids off the couch!”
