OUR METHOD

Our unique method takes you step-by-step to train your balance and the movements used to longboard, so that your body is prepared and you can progress quickly.

We train you how to fall in a safe method so that you lose the fear to fall and know how to protect yourself.

We provide all equipment for you including protective pads and longboard, if needed.

Stretch

Wake up necessary muscle groups, gaining body awareness and the power to control movements on the longboard.  

Balance

Train balance both off and on the skateboard so when it’s time to roll you will have a higher sense of stability. 

Learn to fall

Using safety equipment, you will not only learn how to fall safely, we will also show you how to have fun doing it! 

WHAT OUR PAST STUDENTS SAY

It’s useful for everyone, I’ve been longboarding for a year – I realised I can learn a lot and I would recommend it to anyone, who’s never done it, or has already and wants to improve more!
Belgian

My first class was a great lesson, I didn’t think in three hours I would learn to ride like that. I’m really satisfied!
Juliana

Great! The class met all my expectations. I feel I’m progressing really quickly and after a couple more classes I’ll be able to continue to learn and develop my skills. 
Chris

I’m grateful because it helped me a lot. There was a lot of preparation, I realised this is very important. When I got on the skateboard it was easier than i thought.

BOOK YOUR FOUNDATION CLASS

2 hours (120 minutes)

 

We have adapted our sessions to adhere to social distancing guidelines and all equipment will be disinfected.

Start on the right foundation to ensure your safety and your quick advancement. The class provides an introduction where we communicate some vital techniques that will help you to advance and accelerate your learning going forward.

The longboard foundation class is suitable for all beginners; children and adults of all abilities and ages.

The session will start with some stretching, and off-board training and a safety briefing to teach you how to fall before heading out on the longboard – don’t worry, falling is the funnest part before you learn to longboard!

We’ll continuously provide you technique advice to get you feeling confident and comfortable as we take you step by step to learn to longboard.

At a minimum by the end of the session, you will learn balancing techniques, how to fall safely using your protective padding, how to push with the correct technique and how to stop your longboard.

Although the sessions are 2 hours long, our objective is to get you longboarding confidently in your first class so we may extend the session by 30 minutes, if necessary.

Weather conditions

Whilst we endeavour to carry out our longboard classes, if it is extremely windy or there is rain or snow (meaning a wet and slippery ground) we may have to reschedule your lesson. We will always contact you to via WhatsApp/email to advise you as soon as we are able to discuss the options with you.

What to bring

Comfortable loose fitting clothing will be fine with flat-soled trainers (vans/converse style) where possible.

During the stretching session you will need to be barefoot but a disinfected yoga mat will be provided for your comfort.

Please remember to bring some water to stay hydrated and a healthy snack to keep your energy levels up during the class – believe us, you will sweat!
