Skateboarding! 11 April

Today we had Flavio from Byron Bay Skateboard School come in!

Many of the students had never skated before, so he started them of with the basics then got them to practice turning. By the end of the hour they were all confidently skating all around the campus!

Axel and Xenia had skated before so they tried out some tricks, including Ollies.

We had a mixed group of people who had never tried it before, some who had given it a few goes and those who clearly had quite a bit of experience (Beatriz and Eugene!)!

Almost everyone had a go on the ramp, even those who had never skated before!

Flavio comes to us once a month and will be here again on the 17th of August!

Yesterday we had Flavio from Byron Bay Skateboard School  come in to teach us some skateboarding skills!

Naomi, our Homestay Officer, got involved and discovered she was a natural!!

She got so confident she challenged Cesc, an experienced skater, to a race…. and WON!! Go Nay!

Cesc, wanting to prove he was still a better skater then Naomi, then went one better by using two boards at the same time! Very impressive!

Skateboarding!! 11th January

Yesterday Flavio from Byron Bay Skateboard School joined us at Lexis to teach the students how to skate!

Most people had never skated before so Flavio focused on the basics and had the students weaving in and out of cones!

The weather was beautiful and warm so it was great to be outside in the sun 🙂

Everyone had lots of fun and we’re looking forward to having Flavio back again next month to improve our skills even more, and for those who missed out to also give it a go!

Learn to Skateboard! August 9

On a beautiful sunny afternoon in Byron Bay, we have Flavio from Byron Bay Skateboard School here at Lexis to teach us how to skateboard!

After learning a few basics, we were able to skateboard fairly successfully up and down the length of the garden.

Flavio gave us tips and advice throughout the session, and everyone improved a lot from just one hour of practicing.

Some of the more experience skaters made use of the quarter pipe and showed the beginners what they could aspire to!
