Inspired2Become - youth reaching their full potential

What we do every month to get the youth inspired!

Alternative action sports
-Asian X Games 2012- This was the last Asian X Games for rollerblading. It is sad but what a privilege to have competed at the last one. I gave it my all and did my personal best by placing 6th out of 22 skaters from around the world. All glory to God!! 

It was a miracle that I could have taken my wife with. It was so awesome to have her there to support me. You can read more about our Asian X Games experience here.

-Sponsored skate shoes- for Ethan from the Belhar club.

- Help with ramp building - Some of my rollerblading friends helping me with the I2B park, Eric Palmer, Earl Abrahams and Larry Seymore.

- Skimboards - for the I2B Strand club to practice with while I was at the Asian X Games.

-Holiday day trip- We took some of the club kids on a holiday outing to some of the skate parks in Cape Town, they loved it!

We ended the day off with some skimming at the beach to introduce the skaters to an ocean sport very similar to skating.

-Langebaan Lagoon Festival-
I2B and Push skateboarding did a 2 day skate and skim clinic at the festival.
