Skateboarding at the O'Neill Beach Club, Blankenberge

This is probably the most popular sports activity at the beach club. When you see how many teenagers participate and ride up and down these ramps, it is impressive. The sun shines and several boys perform their jumps without wearing t-shirts or any protection. An act of bravery. In the group, we saw one girl showing her skills. She must earn a lot of respect from all the men.

Dit is waarschijnlijk de meest populaire sportactiviteit op de beach club. Als je ziet hoeveel tieners er deelnemen en op en neer skaten op deze ramp, het is gewoon indrukwekkend. De zon schijnt en verschillende jongens voeren hun sprongen uit zonder T-shirt of bescherming te dragen. Een moedige beslissing. In de groep toont ook een meisje haar vaardigheden. Zij moet veel respect krijgen en haar mannelijke collega's kijken bewonderend toe.

  1. I believe this is a true sport, and takes a lot of balance and skill, at least for the best of them. And skateboard parks are good for the whole community, they help keep the teenagers out of trouble!
