Last Saturday 21st March, Iconx went to the Shanghai Family International School Expo in Pudong. We had a stall, flyers, loads of stickers, frisbees and 4 enthusiastic Iconx staff with a big pack of skateboards, helmets and pads. Our team was ready and boy did we have some fun teaching kids, and parents, the art of riding a skateboard. We were gifted with an abundance of smiles and happiness, not to mention the bright sunshine! Unfortunately Coach Richie burnt his head, but that didn’t spoil our wonderful day out.
Iconx also had 2 stage times during the event. Coach Richie went up on stage and attempted to win the crowd over by speaking a bit of broken Chinese, and it definitely worked. We had loads of volunteers-mostly beginners- coming to the front of the crowd to have a go on a skateboard. James, Menny and Shaun were as amazing as usual teaching their passion for skateboarding.
Iconx would like to thank everyone who supported us throughout this event. Remember that we have weekly lessons, camps and open skates at our skate park- Shanghai’s first and only indoor skate park. Our Iconx kids programs are way more than just jumping on a skateboard. Think of our skate park as a fun school where our team of young international and Chinese staff aim to give the best learning experience designed to improve confidence. We are full of energy so join our community and please spread the word about our projects- EVERYONE IS WELCOME.
