#4. Skateboarding.

📍: Durban beachfront skatepark, KZN

I got to bring out the skater girl in me and it was ridiculously fun!

🥳Fun factor: In the 5year old’s words “it was sooooo great, Mama! When are going again?”

🏋🏾‍♀️Fitness level required: Beginner. It’s for all of us!

👧🏾Child friendliness: it’s their playground. Ayeva wanted to stay looooong after our lesson. I’d say that’s a firm yes to child friendly.

💸Cost: the skatepark is free so if you have a skateboard then just #getoutsideandplay or, like us, you could choose to have a lesson. Google for some options. Cost is R100 – R200pp skateboard hire included.

🤩 What we loved most:

  • I got to #getoutside with my 5yo daughter and she LOVED it
  • happy child = winning 🏆
  • I get like a kid again. It was liberating and “throw your hair back” fun.

🚦Caution: layer the sunblock and bring a cap (it’s not just a look)

Other pluses: it’s right on the beach (hello beach day) and there’s a cafe around the corner that makes deliciously thirst quenching and refreshing smoothies.

Everyone needs to feel like a kid again from time to time. Do it. You’ll laugh out loud and walk away with a spring in your step.
