📍: 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.
