The school of skate is a skateboarding school in South London. We started group skateboarding lessons in 2017 when the new skatepark opened in Charlton Park, in London SE7.
We have since expanded, with group lessons now also at Folkestone Gardens skatepark in Deptford, and provide both beginner and progressing skateboarding lessons. We teach boys, girls, and adults from 5 years old upwards with a wide range of abilities. We can provide skateboards & all safety equipment, or you can bring your own. We provide insured & DBS enhanced checked skateboard instructors.
Private skateboarding lessons
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.
Ali is four! Today she was struggling with motivation with her #kickturns so I showed her the application of what she was learning. This is the #backside #5050grind on #theledge today at #charlton #skatepark 🌞
