Super happy to announce that Dora Horvath (Rogue, Roam & Seek) will be joining us again as one of the sponsored pro riders on Girls Week!! Always a whirlwind of incredible tricks and determination, we were stoked for her that after our camp last Summer she got her own signature deck with Rogue Skateboards. On top of this she always brings a big smile to camp and is super helpful and friendly when helping the newer girls learn to skate. As always the camp is open to all ages and abilities – and its a great opportunity to learn to skate in a fun and friendly environment, just with girls. As an extra bonus this year – every girl will be getting 2 decks!! Come join the fun this Summer. Full info and sign up here.
Stoked to announce that Adam Keats (Pariah, Vend, [image][/image]Skate Warehouse) will be joining us for the first week of the Summer skate camps. He’s just got back from a Pariah team trip to Spain and last night released a brand new bangin edit (see below). He’s a regular face at the NASS and Boardmasters comps and last year won the Wiltshire Skate Series. He’ll be one of the pro riders on the July 21st to 25th week (which we’ve actually had to expand already as we’ve got a big UK contingent coming plus kids from Spain and France!) so get signed up for the last handful of places and for an epic week of hitting up tonnes of skateparks (15 on average every week last year!), picking up some tips from guys like Adam, getting some tricks on film and havin’ a lot of laughs. Summer Hype!

What an amazing year 2013 was for Camp Rubicon! The 6 weeks of Summer alone saw 168 kids from 16 countries clocking up 146 skatepark visits with 22 pro riders! So much fun – so many new friends – and incredible stories! [image][/image]We’re always aiming to make the camps better than ever and so for 2014 there are lots of small and big changes in the works including… 2014 Dates. Click Here! Starting in February Half Term and running all the way through to October Half Term. More weeks including an earlier ‘Euro Week’ in the Summer for our international friends. Also ‘Back To Back’ weeks for those kids who want to come for multiple weeks. Please book early as each week has limited places. Fridays Extended. In the past, camp finished at 3pm on the last day but now we’ll keep going till later – giving us a fuller final day of riding – and also making it easier for parents to come and collect after work. Indoor Only Camps. We’re introducing ‘Indoor Only’ Camps where you’ll spend the week at 5 of the UK’s biggest and best indoor skateparks. (Don’t worry we’re still doing our normal camps too…
Luke McManus (Krook3d, Ideal, Get Lesta) will be rockin Skate Camp for the final week of the Summer. For those that didn’t read his First Light in Sidewalk Mag back in Feb, or see him win the Pixels YouTour comp after that or see his What’s Cookin’? part last month, let’s just say that this guy is killin’ it right now! Stoked to have him join us. Photo (right) is Nosegrind at UK Champs 2012 (c) Mpora. #camphype Get Lesta 'WHAT'S COOKIN'?' – Part 9: Luke McManus.
