【We all enjoyed skateboarding! | スケボー体験会が開催されたよ 】

On Sunday, November 8, we held a skateboarding experience event for ladies of all ages under sunny skies. Nine of Echan’s followers and friends tried their hand at skateboarding. There were high school students as well as moms in their 40s. Most of them were complete beginners! Everyone seemed a bit nervous at the beginning. Yuki-sensei & Rie-sensei completely understood their feelings since they were also nervous their first time skating almost a half year ago.
11月8日、女性限定の英語で交わるスケボー体験会が開催されました。 Eチャンのフォロワーさんを中心とする9人が初めてのスケボーに挑戦。最初は、皆さん緊張気味! 分かりますー。 私たちも初日は怖くてドッキドキでした。

The teacher was Tomita (Tommy) sensei,  an owner of a skateboard shop “Bright Idea” . Under his guidance, everyone learnt how to get on and off a skateboard safely at first.

Rie-sensei interpreted for 2 American participants.

Some local skateboarders also joined in as teachers. At the skate park inside Sasebo Park, it’s common for all of the skateboarders to learn from each other. Small kids were also very kind to teach the beginners.

Check out the video below. By half way through the event, they were already able to get on their boards and skate!

From getting on and off the skateboard to some basic moves, we practiced at our own pace. Some of us were able to tic-tac (a trick to move forward by swinging the front end from right to left).


They practiced at their own pace. それぞれのペースで練習。

You can also enjoy language exchange through this event. 国際交流ができるのも、今回の体験会のいいところ!
