Session 6: Camper of the day

Jack Roof, 17, of Westport, Connecticut, is almost through with his first ever summer at Windells Skate Camp. He’s made quite the impression on his skate coaches. I received files in my inbox after Jack’s first day with his coaches with the words, “Here are photos of this session’s Camper of the Day.” Well, that settles that. Meet Jack Roof, Session 6’s certified COTD.

Jack was urged to come to camp by none other than his mother. (Props, mom!) Mama Roof said “Jack, you can’t just sit around and be a bum this summer.” He had the right idea when he decided that his ticket out of boredom would be a trip to the West Coast for a fun filled session at Windells. He’s been lucky enough to skate with Jamie Weller, the mastermind behind the mecca that is the Concrete Jungle.

Meet a skateboard camper: Sebastian

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a camper here at Windells? Every once in a while we will be featuring one camper that stands out at Windells. This camper is someone who has a good attitude and an all around good time at camp. This session skate camper Sebastian Gaddis was the lucky camper. He was here for session one and two, and you could tell he had a blast and always had a positive attitude. To help everyone get to know Sebastian a little better we pulled him aside, and asked him a couple questions.

A Day of Skating at Newberg Skatepark!

It’s November 4th in Oregon and the sun is still shining! Windells Academy’s head skateboard coach Jamie Weller took the students to Newberg skatepark for the day. The smiles were never ending, the concrete was plentiful, and the sun would just not quit. All the students were so thankful for Jamie’s encouraging words and helpful tips.
