With the launch of our Sunday lessons our initial attendee was taught the basics of skateboarding from riding to a board flip!
This Thursday we began our first lesson of a month long balance course; improving skaters balance and confidence on a skateboard. Skaters ended the lesson by playing Limbo.
As the ever second Sunday lesson began our skaters were taught how to ride and turn on a skateboard. They also learnt their first tricks such as the board flip.
As Thursdays skaters began their second week of their balance course they learnt how to dismount and jump back onto a skateboard. They were also greeted with a suprise coach Patrick Hyatt who shared his experience in skateboarding and helped the attendees develop their skills, whilst also providing some free skateboard magazines for the kids.
As week 3 of the skateboarding course began on a Sunday 10 new skateboarders came to learn the sport. The new and old skaters were taught to perfect their riding whilst also learning to stop on a skateboard. Skaters were also taught how to coffin on a skateboard which everyone was thrilled to learn!
In this lesson the Skaters were taught how to ride a skateboard on 2 wheels; the tricks taught were a manual and tail slide.
At this lesson I aimed to build skaters confidence while on a skateboard allowing them to control the board in a multitude of different ways.
Recap what we have gone over in the balance course and test the members abilities to do the tricks and skills in the course while bringing back the funniest aspects for members to enjoy.
In this lesson I introduced ramps to the attendees and built up their confidence as they used them to skate!
On this lesson i introduced all attendees back and brought with me a camera man who helped film a promo video with consent of parents. Attendees were taught how to use the ramps from basic to intermediate skill levels.
