Skatepark PV's "SK8 the Hill," an event that gives local skateboarders a chance to ride ramps and rails in Rolling Hills Esates, is scheduled for May 5 at Ernie Howlett Park.
The local nonprofit will partner with the City of Rolling Hills Estates and Beachsports to host the event that will feature free skating from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the park, 25851 Hawthorne Blvd., Rolling Hills Estates.
There will also be skateboarding demonstrations from local teams throughout the day. Food trucks will be at the park to sell food and beverages to participants.
This is the second annual SK8 the Hill event in Rolling Hills Estates. The first of last year and attracted about 100 people from across the South Bay.
“It’s surprising that the South Bay, for how many skaters we have out here, doesn’t have nearly as many parks as some areas do," said professional skateboarder and co-owner of Girl Skateboards and Lakai Footwear, Rick Howard at last year's event. "A skate park here would be a good start for sure.”
