Over four action-packed days, Paradise Centre will play host to a 7m x 5m skate ramp, skate shows, breakdancing performances, the coolest kids’ workshops on the coast, giveaways, and more…so fetch your kneepads and fasten your helmet.
KIDS' SKATE WORKSHOPS
Whether your kid has never balanced on a board before or is the next Tony Hawk, they’ll love our free skateboarding clinics hosted by the local crew from Rock 'N' Slide Skateboarding, held at 11am, 12pm and 1pm daily, from 29 June to 2 July. Find the skate workshops in the beachfront dining precinct on The Esplanade (look for the mega skate ramp!).
Every participant in the skateboarding workshop will receive a free drawstring skate bag, plus an entry into the draw to win 1 of 4 skateboards from Fast Times Skateboarding. Make sure you stick around 'cos one winner will be drawn every day at 2pm.*
*T&Cs apply. Winner will be drawn at random daily from that day's participating workshop attendees. Winner must be present to claim their prize. Parent/guardian must be present to claim prize on child's behalf.
From 12pm-4pm, head up to level one near Zone Bowling and check out the Paradise Parlour.
