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 The first i2b/CS Somerset West club meeting under the new shading.
We are proud of coach Wayden from i2b Kleinvlei for getting the youngsters from his community on skates.
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!
