On Monday the 5th of April it was finally on! Skate session for girls only in Skatepark Amsterdam!
About 40 girls came to this event. Not only dutch girls but girls from Belgium, Germany, Austria and Luxembourgh were present too! The event started with lessons. Beginners were working hard to practice kickturns and drop ins. Evelien Bouilliart & Lousia Menke, both riders for Etnies, gave away tips and tricks for ollies and a lot of different flips. Almost all girls joined and worked so hard!
Around 3 pm there was a well deserved break. Chilling in the bar with ice cream and a good movie. ‘As if, and what’ the all girl movie made by Jenna Selby rocked! After seeing the movie, the music volume went up and gave the good vibe for skating again.
The final score at the end of the session: 0x ambulances, 1x icepack, zillion x ollies, 3x buckets of ice cream, a lot of whipcream and a lot of swopping phone numbers and facebooks!
