Skate comp winners showing confidence and style
LAST Sunday the Suffolk Skate Competition was looking threatened by the rain, but as usual it cleared up just in time!
Byron Youth Service along with Byron Skate School have been running these popular youth events for years now.
The skate comps prove this is a legitimate sport, which young people take seriously.

The competition saw the regular young skaters' commitment had paid off with an improvement of their tricks, style and confidence.
Partly due to the encouragement of many supportive parents, who introduce them at a young age due to their own personal love of skating.
