I2B Year End Cup 2016 On the 10th and 11th of December Inspired2Become held the annual I2B Year End Cup at the I2B Skatepark in Somerset West!
A lot of hard work went into preparing for this event. Firstly, we had to fix the last part of the bowl that burnt in the beginning of the year.
Another addition to the park was the new quarter pipe we had to build in less than a week's time! With the help of our park supervisor (Godfrey), some local skaters and an old employee of the park (Scott), we managed to finish the ramp at 1am the evening before the event!
Besides fixing up damaged ramps and building new ones, we also gave the park a new paint coat which made it feel as good as new.
We were very thankful to have received amazing sponsored prizes from a variety of companies/individuals.
Thanks to our sponsors not one youngster had an empty spot in their tummy over the weekend!
On Saturday evening many of the skate club members slept over in the skatepark. They found it somewhat challenging to gather up enough energy for the best trick comp the following day:-)
Congratulations to everyone who competed in the I2B Year End Cup - to those who won and to those who gave it their all. We are extremely proud of each and every one of you!
I2B Year End Skim Jam 2016 On the 3rd of December we had our annual I2B Skim Jam at Camps Bay. We were surprised at the amount of skimboarders who joined the event and it was great getting skimmers from different areas together.
Thank you to eveyone from the USA who supported us with some awesome prizes!
Gayson's Gr. 7 Farewell One of the I2B Gordons Bay club members, Gayson, recently had his Gr. 7 farewell. During previous skimboarding competitions Gayson and his friends met fellow-skimboarder Cameron. They also laid their eyes upon his racing car and decided months ago to ask him to chauffeur Gayson to his Gr. 7 Farewell.
And so, myself, Gayson and Cameron (or as the kids like to call him Supersonic) buckled up and enjoyed sharing this special moment together.
HaveHeart 2016 HaveHeart held their annual longboarding competition. Inspired2Become also took a few ramps to the event and held a small skateboarding competition for the local skaters. Congratulations to the HaveHeart team for organizing yet another great event!
Ending off I2B Clubs We had the last club sessions for the year. Thank you to all the loyal club members for growing and giving your all this year!

One of the highlights of 2016 was to have Moose van Papendorp form part of the I2B Team!
Moose started his own I2B Surf Club and he is coaching youngsters from Nomzamo and Zola at the Strand Beach once a week.
His heart is really to see children's lives change and to be a father to the fatherless.
Moose, we are so excited to have you part of the I2B Team and look forward to see what surprises next year will hold!
