Adelaide

15 - 19 April 2020 OR 18 - 19 APRIL 2020

Join Asha for 5 (or 2) unforgettable days of skating, touring and lesson time in and around the city of Adelaide

    

 To celebrate Skatefresh’s 20th Birthday year, Asha will be returning to Australia…

Join Asha on either a 5 or 2 day Trip touring Adelaide and surrounding areas. Alternatively just take any of the classes on offer over the weekend. (Stops & Slides, Skate Well for Fitness, Dance and Tricks). Click here for details.

Lesson time and technique focus is built into the tour to work on improving your skating while enhancing your fitness and stamina.

Each day we will skate a different route, seeing the city from all angles and using the best places suitable for lessons, some of them indoors and covered, all with excellent surfaces.

Lesson stops each day with Asha will focus on improving and perfecting your skating stride, various stopping techniques and slides, crossovers, backward skating, jumps, tricks and fitness. All this in a relaxed, friendly and fun environment.

If on the 5 or 2 day Trip, 3 weekend classes are included in the Trip price and during touring you will be encouraged to practice your new skills in real world situations, e.g. stopping combinations at speed.

 

TRIP Itinerary

We begin the 5 day Trip on Weds 15th April in the late afternoon with a warm up class session and skills analysis with video session (so we can compare your skills by the end of the week).

The 2 day Trippers will join the group on Saturday morning 18th April.

The 5 day Trippers will join the local Adelaide skate community for their Wednesday Night Skate which will take us past the city’s main sights.

Both trips end on Sunday 19th April between 3pm and 4pm allowing you time to travel home that evening.

We will skate to a winery one day and enjoy the region’s excellent wine and produce with optional wine tastings and public transport return to the city.

Relax and enjoy your free time and evenings exploring the city off skates. Additional (optional) off-skates excursions (one including boats) will be announced (with prices) closer to the time as organisation of these is still in process.

Asha is continually available to train and polish your existing skills and you’ll leave the Trip with a bunch of new stopping methods, smoother crossovers, more efficient skating and some new tricks to keep you busy for the rest of the year.

The 5 day Trip includes 2 yoga sessions (2 day Trip includes 1 yoga session) to ensure you don’t get stiff and perhaps inspire a new stretching routine which Asha considers “essential maintenance” for skaters. We will use Asha’s Online course ‘Yoga for Skaters’ to guide these sessions.
