Ramp Skating Taster Session

Ramp Skating Taster Session

Sun 21 Feb 2021 (All day)
Various Times
£12 / £8 (low income) / £16 (supporter)
Transgression Park
Ocean Terminal, Ocean Drive
EH6 6JJ Edinburgh

Beginner ramp skating classes are best placed for women who have some skating experience, though nothing more than being able to skate and stop is needed. If you've never skated before we'd suggest you do the roller skate session earlier in the day, and you should then be fine to join this one as well.

The session will give the skater a chance to experience what it is like in a skate park, with an instructor.  You will be supported and have a space cleared for you to learn about stance, falling, rules of the park, equipments and how to use them all. 

After the session we will spend 30mins talking about body image, what it has meant to you as a woman, and whether it has ever stopped you from being phyiscally active.
