We’ve been wanting to throw a girls beginner clinic with KCDC for a while. We got to host our clinic around International Womxn’s day alongside Nike SB’s international celebration– once again perfect timing with KCDC
The turnout was incredible with folx from age 4–50! We had a chance to huddle before the session to learn each other’s names and goals for the day. We were so inspired by how many people came to step on a board for the very first time!
We geared up and spread out around the space to conquer fears, learn some new skills and make new friends.
We had some really amazing volunteers - some of the girls from Late Skate came out. And some folx from Queer Skateboarding NYC too! May, pictured below, brought some fun dance vibes into her teaching style. Even the busiest person we know, Amy Ellington, got a chance to teach some pumping on the ramp!
Some of our favorite moments were made on the ramp – built by Pat Smith and the CODA Skateboards crew.
But don’t worry, we got some flatground in too!
At the end - everyone was all smiles. We took some time to applaud everyone’s efforts and victories before digging into Screamer’s Pizza (which we don’t have photos of because we dig into the pizza so quickly!)
