Dizzying: Cobram's Mitch Cole, 13, spins in the air.








Cobram skate park was buzzing with activity on Sunday, with dozens of young people turning up to test their skills in a skating workshop.

The event was hosted by Skateboarding Australia and attracted kids of all ages — from those familiar with kick-flips and ollies to those who’d never set foot on a half-pipe.

For Caine Kelf, 10, it was his first time skateboarding.

SBA professionals had the Melbourne boy whizzing around the skate park by the day’s end.

Cobram brothers Anthony, 10, and Mitch Cole, 13, are regular skaters, and — together with their friends — put on tricks displays for spectators.

The skating workshop was part of Moira Shire Council’s National Youth Week celebrations.

Held on the final day of the annual celebration of young people aged 12 to 25 years, the day also offered children’s rides and market stalls at Federation Park.

It was held in conjunction with Rumble in the Gums music festival, organised by Cobram Community House’s Youth Foundation.

Shepparton hip-hop star Briggs performed for the crowd, in addition to performances by local acts Kelly Brothers, Ellipsis, B-Man, Cam and Eloise, Ordinary Kings, and Dave and Molly.
