Levelling Up... Again!

Today was the last day of our Fall Session at Underpass. Over the past 5 weeks we’ve become a little community that learns together, encourages each other, and celebrates victories as a team.

⠀⠀

We discussed how a little kindness can go a long way, like helping someone up after a fall, or a high five after landing a trick.

⠀⠀

I think this resonates with a lot of young people. Skateboarding allows you to challenge yourself without any reward aside from the feeling of satisfaction that comes from persevering. But as a group activity, it helps us empathize and share our joy with others.

⠀⠀

Kids in the lesson program feel great after crossing off a trick on their list, and they absolutely LOVE completing the list and moving to the next level! The cheering, clapping, and fist bumps make it all the more special.

⠀⠀

They know that we rise together, and we’re here to learn from each other, not just the instructors. Today was a big day for everyone—the smiles say it all!

⠀⠀

We owe a massive debt of gratitude to our friends at @thebay_ for letting us adopt their level system. If you don’t already, you need to follow the incredible work they’re doing in Lincoln, NE. Thanks, guys! 🙏🏽❤️
