Club hosts couch-free Saturdays
The Boys and Girls Club of Laguna Beach is encouraging kids to get off the couch and move by transforming the facility into a skate park every Saturday beginning Oct. 23, where local thrashers will have an opportunity to show off their skills and score a chance to win a signed Tony Hawk skateboard.
The Club recently acquired two quarter-pipes that can be adjusted to make a half pipe, and a fun box equipped with a grind rail. The ramps were designed and built by pro-skater Chad Shetler, ensuring a fun ride, according to club organizers.
The main event for our Couch Free Saturday is a skate competition at 1 p.m., where three judges will hand out prizes from Hobie Surf Shop for free-style skating in age brackets 10 and younger; 11 to 13; and 14 and older.
The first place winner will walk away with a signed Tony Hawk skateboard.
