Welcome to the Beach on Skates!
Like every year. Before Corona, LondonSkateLife organises a trip for the club’s students. A moment to explore other cities on skates, enjoy the community that we have and enjoy the life on skates that each city has to offer. This year we are going to Barcelona, and here I leave you our plan.
Flight and Hotel: Everyone has different holidays or schedules, the same can be said about budgets for the trip, which Is why we recommend areas in central Barcelona. Our activities will take place near Forum but this area is like 30 min by skates from central barcelona, so come to the classes on skates. We recommend that you start purchasing flight tickets now as this will be more economical than buying them nearer the time. As we will be going in a large group, there will likely be mini groups for sharing Airbnbs and Hostels, but we are happy for you to choose whichever option is most appropriate for your budget. We do ask that if you choose a hotel with a penthouse, that you invite us to see the sunset!
Level: The trip is open to all students (and old club students) but it is restricted by level, LStage 2: Intermedate and above. If you are unsure about your level we advise that you send us your B-Test video, that was you can eliminate doubt and begin to train in order to be ready.
- Classes: As a club we will organise classes based on SpeciaLS. Classes will be taught by one of the best skaters in Barcelona.
- 10-11pm – Rollerobics-Judith Abarca @judit.coach
- 11-12pm – Slalom-Jon Larrucea @jonlarrucea
- 12-1pm – Downhill (+ slides)-Pablo Soler @pablo.soler
- 1-2pm – Urban (+Skatepark)-Danny Aldridge @dannyaldridge1111
- LSRoll: Barcelona: After the classes will host a relaxed skate through the streets of Barcelona, giving priority to the coastal part, traveling through beautiful parts of the city. We will be accompanied by Marshals to better control the skate but we will need good performance in the streets. If you still doubt your level we invite you to attend more classes, take part in London skates like the Sunday Stroll and improve, you still have 3 months.
- Dinner and Party: Given that not everything is skating, we will have a special dinner for us, where you will be able to enjoy Spanish gastronomy with the best company of LS. After this we will party, and use our shoes for the first time on the trip.
Price: We will require a Basic Fee of £50 per person (The fee includes 1 class of your choosing – each additional class will be charged at £15) in order for us to be able to offer classes, an official LSTrip T-shirt and a reservation at a restaurant where the first drink is on us. Additionally, your fee will go towards helping the instructors that come on the trip. £50 1 class, £65 2 classes, £80 3 classes, £95 4 classes.
