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.
