A beginner skateboard lesson where you’ll first learn how to put your pads on properly, (safety first!) then we’ll give you a skateboard and you’ll learn:
- How to stand on your skateboard
- How to push
- How to control your speed
- Controlled falling.
Moving on to:
- Riding up and down flat banks and quarter pipes on your board
- Pumping (keeping your speed up)
- Kick turns
- Riding fakie (backwards)
- Dropping off kerbs
- Dropping in the quarter pipe
When you’ve learned to drop in the quarter pipe you can join the progressing riders class.
