Skate Levels

Skate Level 1

These students have maybe never stood on a skateboard before or are learning to get more comfortable on their skateboards. We will work on board control, stance, balance, pushing, turning, and start on the basics of riding up and down ramps.

Skate Level 2

These students feel confident riding on their skateboard and feel comfortable riding up and down ramps. They are ready to begin working on more advanced maneuvers such as rock to fakie, drop ins, ollies, kickturns on ramps, and beyond.

Skate Level 3

These students have learned the basics of their skateboard and are ready to start working on specific tricks and style. Pop shuvits, kickflips, grinds, launches, and more! Oh my!
