The importance of starting to practice skateboarding from an early age is key to becoming an elite athlete. Danny León, Leticia Bufoni, Keet Oldenbeuving, and Matías Dell Olio are clear examples of this, as they started skateboarding as young as 6 or 7 years old. That's why, at the O Marisquiño FAMILY DAY, we have prepared special workshops for beginners, specially designed for children to get introduced to this exciting sport.
No prior knowledge is required, just a willingness to learn and have fun. It's an initiation and improvement class in skateboarding led by the Barrier School. Participants will learn about the stance in skateboarding (Goofy or Regular), basic notions of pushing and turning on the skateboard will be shown, and depending on each participant's level, tricks will be practised on different modules of the skatepark.
If skateboarding is a discipline of great importance at the festival, these workshops couldn't be missing. The youngest ones will have an unforgettable experience at O Marisquiño, immersing themselves in the world of skateboarding surrounded by fun and excitement!
