    Default Skateboarding Centurion

    Hi

    I am looking to meet people to skate with. As a skateboarder its obvious that skating alone is fun but skating with people helps a lot to progress and push harder to progress.

    I generally skate in eco park area. I have some grindboxes and rails i carry with to the empty flat area behind the mall.
    If you are or know anyone of any age who skateboards in centurion please reply here and lets see if we can get a healthy skateboarding community going in centurion.


    Cheers

    I should add the following. I am 35 with a kid on the way. That being said skating with younger people (kids) has never been an issue. Skaters are in general not phased by the age difference as we all do what we love which is skating and rolling ankles.

    However that being said i should state that i am not young enough to break into schools and trespass onto areas as i once did. For me there are now actual consequences of skating in restricted areas.

    As such all obstacles to skate are transported to safe areas that allows skateboarders. This removes the risk of being prosecuted.

    If you were only in Durban.

    Hi everyone.

    Update on the situation at ecopark mall.
    At the back of the mall i have the following to skate

    Rail
    Grind Box
    Kicker Ramp

    Sessions on weekends are pretty early for most skaters.
    Morning sessions are 9am - 11am
    Afternoon sessions are 5pm - 6:30pm

    There is light so once it gets dark skating is still possible.

    Weekdays sessions are from 5pm = 6:30pm

    Awesome.
    Pop in one weekend. Dont mind giving some tips etc.
    My kid is still a few years away from walking never mind skating.

    Want to see if we can get a healthy skateboarding community going in the area.

    In the back where the practice motorcycle area is.

    you really should move to Cape Town

    theres a skate spot right outside my flat (three steps for grinds and manuals), public park up the road and many many spots all over the city

    my skateboard unfortunately has been sitting in the corner for a few years, I still actively follow skating though through videos and attending comps but I'm just not in the mood to fall anymore

    skate smaller stuff. I stay away from anything over 3 stairs.
    My grindbox and rails are 20cm high. So if i slip out theres no fall.

    Last fall i took was at germiston bowl 2 weeks back and i am still feeling the hurt. Sucks getting older
