Hundreds of youngsters enjoyed sold-out skateboarding sessions at Weston’s Tropicana, as the passion for the sport grows in the town.
Pop-up skatepark Transend returned to the lido for the fourth time over the school half-term break, giving kids the chance to show off their best tricks on skateboards, scooters and BMX bikes.
A medley of ramps and rails filled the Trop, and hundreds of youngsters took on the obstacles on two wheels or four.
The event is organised by the community of skaters from churches across Weston, and they hope the series of pop-up events boosts the popularity of skating in the town.
Transend will return to the Trop over the Easter holiday from April 8-12.
