Welcome to our fourth year of the Wednesday Night Longboard Clinics! 2012 was a very successful year for us and we plan to make 2013 better still.
Royal Board Shop welcomes you to our Weekly Longboard Clinics ever Wednesday night at 814 Edmonton Trail NE. Like our previous years we will meet at the shop for 5:45pm and as a group head out to the pathways close to the store shortly after 6pm. Our intention for the clinic is to teach you the most important aspect of the sport, Safety. With that in mind, we requite participants to wear a helmet, bring a longboard & sign a waiver. Gloves are also recommended.
As these clinics are focused on beginners, we teach you the basics of longboarding such as learning to stop, push and ride properly. Of course we realize some people learn faster than others, so we also are happy to teach you the more advanced maneuvers such as sliding & cornering.
We would like to keep these clinics focused on teaching beginners so we encourage the more advanced riders to participate in the community run “Saturday Night Ride” that runs Saturday Nights from Higher Ground in Kensington at 9pm.
We also have The Sunday Night Cruise at our South location at 380 Canyon Meadows Drive. Meet at 5:45pm and leave shortly after 6pm on Sunday night for an hour long non-instructional cruise through Fish Creek Provincial Park. The Sunday Night Cruise is for all ability levels and is a great way to meet other riders in the south of Calgary.
We welcome boys and girls, men and women, couples and singles of ALL ages to participate in these clinics. As you’ll find out, they are an extremely fun way to learn a new sport, meet new friends, and find other people with the common interest of longboarding.
Please “Like Us” on Facebook and visit the Events Page to see each of the clinics and their specific dates & times.
Thanks again for participating, we hope to everybody out again this year!
PS: Our clinics are always FREE!
