Good News Friday!

50-50 Grind. Casper Flip. Goofy-Foot. Fakie. The Mushroom.

All of these are skateboarding terms, and I have no idea what any one of them means. But do you know who does? Evan Dittig and some lucky participants in Imagine!’s Out & About Summer Camp.

Evan is a program director for “Skate.Now” based out of Wayne, NJ. He offers skate classes and private lessons to individuals of all ages. Every once in a while, Evan travels the country or the world to offer free lessons to groups as a way to give back to the community.

Evan recently connected with Imagine!’s Out & About department and held a class on Monday morning, July 10, at the Lafayette Skate Park. Evan had not facilitated a group this large outside of his home base before, so he contacted organizations and personal connections to get donated skateboards for the Out & About class. In addition, Evan’s cousin, who lives in Colorado, traded in some old hockey sticks at a local sports store for some helmets for class.

Thanks Evan! Everyone had a great time.

Here's some fun pictures of the action.

And below is a video of a camper pulling off a "mushroom."
