This holiday season, shred, skate and get stoked at Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina with the Resort’s new kid-centric skateboarding camp offered exclusively by Camp Kohola, the supervised daily activity program for keiki and teens at Four Seasons. In partnership with Proper Rideshop – Hawaii’s premiere youth development skateboarding training facility – Four Seasons Resort Oahu x Proper Rideshop Skate Camp will be “dropping in” over Thanksgiving weekend, November 23-24, 2018.
The skate-filled Thanksgiving weekend will also include a special appearance by local skateboarder Heimana Reynolds on Saturday, November 24, 2018. Heimana, tapped as Pro Skateboarding’s next big star at the age of 10, has just returned from the 2018 Skateboarding Championships in Nanjing and will represent the sport in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. His parents, Matt and Samantha, founded ProperRide to foster their son’s early affinity for the sport.
The Reynolds family turned their lives into skateboarding with the opening of Proper Rideshop, and Heimana spent every second he could in the street, bowl or park honing his craft.
As the first resort-style skateboarding facility in Hawaii, Four Seasons Resort Oahu x Proper Rideshop Skate Camp is designed to empower, encourage and build confidence through skateboarding in a safe environment. The Skate Camp will feature three sessions November 23-24, 2018, offered to children ages 7 to 17 years of age, with private lessons available upon request. The camp is available to skateboarders of all skill levels, with no previous skateboarding experience required. Mini-shredders will learn the fundamentals of skateboarding and safety skills, while also building social, mental and physical skills.
The fun and engaging camp will feature expert instruction by Proper Rideshop’s professional staff of experienced board riders and trained instructors to give each rider a positive experience. Private one-on-one hour skateboarding lessons are also available upon request and availability. The camp includes equipment rental (helmet, pads, skateboard), and top of the line obstacles and ramps, including mini ramps, pump tracks, rails, and speed bumps.

Additionally, guests are invited to Proper Rideshop’s “Build-a-Board” and “Build-a-Ramp” Workshop, allowing mini-shredders to customise their very own skateboarding experience – from the decks to trucks, wheels and grips, and also to create a mini ramp to practice their new skills at home.
