Whilst based in South London we provide private skateboarding lessons at skateparks across most of London. We have run birthday party lessons, Scout group lessons, and local Council events. We can arrange to bring portable ramps & rails to your venue. Please contact us if you have any questions about our services.
Not everyone wants to do a laser flip down 16 stairs. At school of skate we recognise that the vast majority of us are beginners, who have more modest goals, so we focus on helping you stand up on your board, ride along, without falling off.
We provide progressing group and private lessons. After you’ve learnt the basics we can take you forward to follow either a street or transition pathway. With street, you can learn to ollie, and grind (we have specialised equipment made just for this), and onto more advanced skills like the kickflip. With transition you learn to skate ramps and to carve bowls, and can learn lip tricks and airs.
If you’ve got any questions about progressing your skateboarding beyond the basics you can drop us a message.
So @dan.skates.london wanted to get some tricks up on the lip in our session, so we went with some layback FS rocks. These are good to learn because they look super steezy but are relatively easy because you get to cheat and use your hands.. you can then work out how to hands free from there..
Sooo this might not look like much but it's the culmination of about four years work.. our student @lianne909 is the first student to pass her beginner grading by using the app 🙌
To graduate she answered a few questions about what she'd learnt and uploaded a clip of #thedropin to her Instagram account. The exclusive School of Skate t-shirt will be sent out shortly with her graduation pack and she can join our progressing group lessons 😄
The process of tracking skills and grading for both coach & student is quite clunky because we are using a few systems to do it, but we look forward to joining it up better soon..
Lovely day at Charlton park today! We were working on The Drop In, and came to Charlton because of the mellow quarterpipe in the corner of the street course. Rachel went from two hands, to one hand, to dropping in with a little support from me under her arm ☺️
Oh and she got a little scrape on one attempt. You gotta pay to play 😜
Get down to @folkestonegardensskatepark next Saturday for the summer ender. I'll be putting on some free lessons and a BBQ. Lessons between 1pm and 3pm. Just turn up and add your name to a 30 min slot on the day.
Here's @vman_99 with Zadie at our under 5's lesson. In this lesson we show you how to hold/support your little ones as they skate (instead of us).. she's working on #thedropin here, which is super advanced but she's been coming for a year or two now 😉
We've also got the @blindskate
soft tops for you to use at this lesson
