This looks pretty interesting, and a good example of making sport fun. Rampworx recently decided to host the UK’s first Extreme Sports Spring Break party on Friday 22nd May. Might be worth promoting to any networks of young people.
Embracing the American model this Spring break event will consist of outrageous teenage fun and downright debauchery. Rampworx takes place in just one adrenalin and soft drink fuelled evening crammed with a host of fun filled activities revolving around music, dance, sports and art. The event, the first of its kind in the UK is being supported by Juice FM, Casio – G Shock, Red Bull, CALM, Raw TV, Billabong and Nandos.
Juice FM will be broadcasting live and direct from the party, whilst RAW TV (Channel 4) show will be recording the sporting spring break shenanigans exploding inside. Top riders from across Europe will mingle with local BMXer’s skateboarders and In Line skaters to celebrate the completion of the spring term and the launch of the summer season.
Outside, the Juice FM stage will house 5 live bands; including KOF who has supported Akon, Dizzee Rascal, Sway and Ms Dynamite. There will be a street dance comp and local DJ. Toko drummers consisting of young people from Rock Ferry and Tranmere Primary School will be thrashing out summer rhythmic beats as hundreds of expected revelers get involved in a range of alternative activities, such as the G Shock bus, a Billabong sponsored surf ride, a Red Bull rodeo bull, a 28ft climbing wall and graffiti wall.
Rampworx is a registered children’s charity and the largest indoor skatepark in the UK, catering for BMX, In Line skating and skateboarding. Each week an average of 1000 young people pass through its doors to participate in a range of activities ranging from extreme sports, coaching and alternative activities ranging from drama, photography, music, video, graffiti art, health schemes and anti crime initiatives.
