Inspired2Become - youth reaching their full potential

What we do every month to get the youth inspired!

Alternative action sports by Chris
-New quarter pipe for Strand skate park and I2B Strand Skate Club.

-I2B T-shirt sponsored for the Paarl Christian Skaters Comp.

-The Somerset West I2B Skate Park gets a fence- The municipality supports the I2B project in Somerset West where we are in the process of building the "head quarters skate park" for I2B.

-The National Christian Skaters/Surfers Conference in J-Bay- This is definitely a high light of each year. We get to take some members from each of our clubs on this road trip. They have to get some money together themselves and I2B does the t-shirt fund-raiser for this trip. We stayed at a campsite in J-bay where the conference was also held. There were morning and evening sessions with awesome worship. The afternoons was mostly open for skim, skate and surf. I believe all of us received so much out of this trip. Learning more about God, each other, the country and our sport. We really want to thank everyone who supported us to go. May God bless you! They guys got to see and experience many different beaches, towns and skate parks, some of it were:
Knysna Skate Park: The Yard

J-Bay Skate Park: The Element Park
