Have Fun getting Fit
Alex Skate Park is situated in the exquisite setting of Alex Beach right next to the Surf Club. The young and young at heart can skate or scooter to their hearts content. As I walk past it often I see some real talent on show. I've never tried it but we can always appreciate the concentration, balance and skill to master such exciting tricks.
Built in 1995, only a month ago council consulted the local users — skate boarders, scooter riders and BMXers — in regard to a proposed upgrade next year to bring it into this century. Teens were pleased to be involved as they were consulted regarding the new design.
Skate Sauce is the first skate shop to open opposite this Skate Park and is owned by a local who has another shop in Morayfield. They specialise in skate boards, protective wear, shirts, shoes and caps for all those trendy skaters out there.
Skate Connection's speciality is scooters but they also stock a large range of skateboards, roller blades and again the protective gear, shirts, shoes and caps that are the fashion for these hipsters. They had long boards, arbor boards and plenty on sale at the moment and the friendly young shop assistant had the manner and outlook that will move stock.
