Welcome to the Eastbourne Skate School website – the Internet home of skating in Eastbourne and across Sussex.
SK8school has been teaching Eastbourne to skate since 1995 and we have the most qualified and experienced instructors around. We are the only Internationally recognised Skate School in Eastbourne and the only group qualified to teach skate lessons beyond beginner level in the area.
SK8school has a team of 10+ Instructors, Coaches and Consultants covering much of Sussex and South London, with Skate Lessons, Skate Events, Roller Discos and Roller Birthday Parties, Hen Parties and Skate Hire.
Our Group Eastbourne Skate Lessons are the most affordable in Eastbourne starting at FREE! with a voucher from participating skate shops. Our Family Eastbourne Roller Disco also runs all year. We are a Child and Family Friendly Co-operative of skating professionals ready to get your life rolling!
This Saturday May 25th is a fun packed rolling day! Join us at the Hampden Park Sports Centre from 2-3pm for a 1 hour skating workshop – and it’s only a pound!
BOOKING ESSENTIAL – just call the Hampden Park Sports Centre and book in. If you require skate hire, get there early!
Next up… is the Carnival Procession and the skaters from the Eastbourne Edge Hockey Club, Bourne Bombshells Roller Derby, Eastbourne Skating Club and SK8school will all be there.
We’re meeting at the Cage from 3pm and joining the procession at 4pm. If you are planning on joining the BBQ and Cinema part of the evening later, leave your food/drink/BBQs with the organisers at the cage, so you don’t need to carry them all through the processions! This finishes at the wish tower at 6ish. We then skate back down the seafront to the car park at fort fun for…
The Beach BBQ and Open Air Cinema. You need to bring your own food and drink. A disposable BBQ would be a good idea, but not essential as there should be enough of the larger BBQ’s available to go round…
Obviously like the Carnival procession this portion of the event is weather dependant, especially the Open Air Cinema part of the event, which will require low wind speeds! (And fairly dark conditions, so will be towards the later part of the evening, certainly after Dusk).
One final thing… due to good old Health and Safety Laws… we can’t provide food (even free), or cook it for you! You have to take responsibility for your own food preparation, cooking etc.
PLEASE NOTE : As a result of all this excitement there is no Roller Disco at Hampden Park this weekend, Battle and Hastings are unaffected.
Well done to all those that attended the first SK8 Streetwize course of 2013, they can all now skate faster, stop better and handle everything the great outdoors throws at the travelling skater, for example….
Kerbs, Steps, Hills, Rough terrain, Pedestrians, Cars, crossing roads, clearing the way for other skaters, skating in groups and so much more…
Happy Easter Skaters … and with the March Madness comes a few updates and time alterations to ring in the change of season and the start of the great outdoor world of skating.
