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.

Skating in Eastbourne, better than ever!

Gradings – April 4th

Gradings will be taking place after the Hampden Park Roller Disco on April 4th. This event will be open to all ages and abilities and we will be examining up to grade 5. BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL and there are discounts if you wish to go to the Disco beforehand as well as the Grading.

There will be a practise and warm up area to use whilst the exams are taking place. This is the ideal time to test your skills, get your certificates or improve on the gradings you’ve already taken.

Doors open at 5:30pm. We expect Grade 1 to complete by 6:15pm, rapidly going through the Grades sequentially after that.

Cost is £6 for the Grading and Disco or £4 just for the Grading.

Booking is Essential as we need to have the right number of instructors to conduct the Exams in the time allowed.

There will be some coaching and correction available during the exams and warm up zones, but this is not suitable for first time lessons – you need to have completed at least one lesson or SK8school after school skate club to attempt a grading.
