Flagstaff Shoalhaven's Life Choices team held a Skatetastic event during Youth Week in September painting their own skateboards thanks to a grant from Shoalhaven City Council.

Fifteen enthusiastic participants enjoyed creating their own themed skateboard, led by an artist and inspired by indigenous designs ... and some NRL codes.

"It was so much fun to make," said one participant.  During lunch, everyone enjoyed party pies and sausage rolls.

Happy Youth Week.
