Beginning Lessons

Have you wanted to start skateboarding but don’t know where to begin? Ever wanted to experience the rush of skateboarding, but lack the courage and know how? This is the class for you. Designed for all ages, these lessons can help develop the skills needed to succeed on your skateboard. Skills practiced during this class are pushing correctly, balance, turning, rolling down banks, learning how to Ollie, and the most important topic, safety in the Skatepark. Full protective gear consisting of a helmet, elbow pads, and knee pads is required. A skateboard purchased from a skateboard shop is highly recommended. A quality board turns better, rolls better, and is much safer to use. This is the most economical skateboard class offered in Orange County. The class maximum is ten participants to one Teacher. If you desire more one on one time, we would suggest taking private lessons.
