Picking up the sickest moves

WARWICK skater Kurt Molloy was full of praise for the initiative to hold a skating workshop at the Warwick Skatebowl in Queens Park yesterday.

A skatebowl regular, Kurt said he was glad they were doing a workshop in Warwick.

"The workshop was awesome. They need to do it more often. It brightened up everyone's day," he said.

The Drawing Boards group from Brisbane demonstrated their craft and instructed youth at Boggabilla and Goondiwindi before conducting yesterday's workshop in Warwick.

"There were about 50 to 60 kids at each of the three workshops," Mr Molloy said.

"It's harder to get team sports going in smaller places so we just encourage park sports.

"We teach them how to ride so they can be safe.

"A couple of the skaters in Warwick could mix it with the best in Brisbane with a bit of practice."
