It seems kids in and around the City of Leduc can’t get enough skateboards, as a popular entry level course has roughly doubled in size.

The City of Leduc’s annual two-day beginner’s skate camp at the Leduc Skate Park July 13 and 14 was very well received noted one of the instructors last Thursday.

Dean Piquette of Rumour Skateboards said the course attracted 20 kids this year, “by far the biggest year” he said.

He noted that’s about double the size of previous years, and it seems the entry-level skateboard camp seems to be attracting a  lot of interest from girls.

Piquette said the main purpose of the camp is to give kids the basic skills they need such as foot placement and balance to enjoy the Leduc Skate Park and the confidence to handle the obstacles at the park. He noted the basic instruction gives the kids the foundation they need to move up in challenges.

Kids were joined by their families who brought tents with them as protection from hot sun or unpredictable rain showers.
