Skate in Eastbourne or Brighton on the street skates!

Every Tuesday and Wednesday there’s a couple of free street skates with varied weekly routes. The Skate in Eastbourne happens on a Wednesday and meets up at the Skaters Cage on Royal Parade, then heads off to various locations depending on the mood of the crowd! The skate meets up from 7pm and skaters warm up with some Roller Basketball till kick off at 7:30pm. The skate is suitable for intermediate skaters.

Street Skating

The Brighton skate takes place on a Tuesday from 7:30pm meeting at the West Pier. Routes do vary and the pace can be quick and the hills can be steep! There is a lot of actual street, kerbs etc. So don’t just pop some skates on for the first time and expect to join in! Distance can be 6 miles+ on some routes.

In all cases use your head! If the weather looks like it’s going to be very windy or wet, or the floors are wet, then the skate may not go ahead. Often they are not “organised” events so there is no central place to check for GO/No Go.

Want to do this, but not sure you have the skills? Try the Skate Streetwize Course.
