The SA national lockdown coming to an end

It has been really tough for our club kids to stay at home during the long lockdown. CJ from one of the I2B clubs drew this cool skatepark. Finally outdoor exercise is allowed again.



The blessing of family

My dad has been helping us at the skatepark for the last couple of months. He is now part of I2B and he is looking to start a mentorship and skills development project (with wood work and restoring old cars) at the skatepark. This project will be aimed at boys who dropped out of high school. Please let us know if you would like to get involved in this project. 



My dad revamped the bowl and it looks amazing!



Youth Day online event 

Goosebuster (13 year old Gustav) asked me to do an online interview and skate show on Youth Day. Well done for pulling this off Gustav! 

Below is a screen-grab from the recording:


New stickers 

We redid the back window of the I2B van and added a sticker on the bumper. We are also looking to redo all the stickers on the sides as the sun has damaged it pretty badly by this time. If you would like to help us with this, please let us know.


Hermanus progress 

It is great to see how the skatepark project in Hermanus is coming together. I did the design and the building part is a community project.

 

New rugby balls

We are very grateful for the donation of new rugby balls. We started with some individual athletics training and the balls come in handy to play with while doing our training session on the rugby field.

The i2b skatepark expansion
Below is a drawing of the dream we had since the beginning of 2016 to make the skatepark more family friendly.



We finally raised enough support in 2019 to start the project. At the beginning of December we started with moving the fence and leveling the ground.


We used old quarter pipe frames, flipped it upside down, placed it on poles and tied some shading nets to it. We also bought some recycled plastic wood benches. The next steps would be to lay down concrete and build a non-permanent shop front/entrance.


Thank you to everyone who supported us to get this far. We are at a point where we need more support to finish the project. Please let us know if you would like to get involved.


I2B clubs feedback

Thanks to coach Moose, all the volunteers and Son Surf Strand surf school for keeping these youngster from the i2b Strand surf club so stoked.


We are proud of all our other coaches and appreciate you a lot!
