Beginners Skateboard Tuition

A safe and friendly introduction to skateboarding for ages 5 – 12

 

On our hugely popular beginners course we take eager learners through the first steps of skateboarding and help them become comfortable and confident. We start at the very beginning with standing and moving, staying safe and correct stance. We will then move along together into using ramps, basic moves and gaining full board control! Beginners lessons are group based, with extra allowance and support always being given to those who feel they want more (or less!) help. There is a maximum of 10 on each course, and skateboards and safety equipment are provided.

4What will we learn?

  • Staying safe and using a skatepark safely
  • Correct stance and riding comfortably
  • Pushing and turning
  • Rolling down and up ramps
  • Dropping in
  • Basic moves such as rolling off drops, manuals and pumping on ramps
  • Turning on ramps
  • Introduction to Ollies
  • Gaining confidence, challenging yourself and conquering fears
  • How to take what you have learned to help you in the future
  • There’s always time for a few other bits to throw in

What we expect

  • We don’t ask for much, just for your child to want to give it a go. Also to understand that this is a group lesson and we are all learning at once, and to listen and follow instructions even if they’ve heard it before or know it already!

If you feel your child may be well on the way to what is mentioned above you may want to consider the improvers, if in doubt give us a shout.
