About the lesson

I'm happy to work with skateboarders of all levels in the Bristol area.
My local skatepark is St George but lessons can be arranged for other parks or skate spots.
The following will be covered:
•Skateboard Mechanics (Skateboard anatomy)
•All terrain Skateboarding
•How to do tricks
•Perspective and Mentalities for self learning
•Concepts to remember (the tricks for getting the tricks)
•Skatepark Etiquette and Awareness
I have been skateboarding for over twenty years, and have been a professional sponsored skateboarder for over ten years.
I have attended and won various competitions and have worked at skate camps and for other skate schools in the UK. I have also done some youth work.

I'm Skateboard GB qualified, CRB checked and also have a certificate in basic first aid and Safeguarding (children and young people).

I'm happy when I see people landing tricks and cheering each other on. I believe in the spirit of the session and in helping others to progress. I find it most rewarding to see someone click when I have helped them figure out how to do a trick.
I have always been happy to take people under my wing and to give tips to getting the tricks, it's a blessing to be able to Coach with a more focused approach that is tailor suited to the individual.
I like to show that there might be a different approach to the way they skate or even the obstacles they are skating.
I'm sponsored by a Skateboard company and film content for them, I have 2 signature skateboard decks that sell in UK skate shops.
I'm looking forward to skating with even more skateboarders from diverse backgrounds and encouraging their individual approach.
Perfect! My lesson with Daryl was great! I felt at ease since the start despite the fact that he is a great skateboarder and I'm just a beginner. He helped me feel comfortable in the skate park and I've learnt loads about what's the best and safest way to move in between other users of the park. With his tips, I managed to land some tricks I was struggling with for some time! I'm really pleased! He was creative, able to speak to me in a way that made sense to me and I had a great time! I definitely recommend him and I will be booking more lessons with him soon! Thanx Daryl!
- Daryl's response : Isi is showing great promise and understanding of her skating.
She learns well and her practice is really paying off!
It looks like she will be approaching a wide range of obstacles as she improves.
A great addition to the session!

Daryl is a sick coach! He always finds the right tip that helps me get the trick! He's so encouraging and creative and comes up with little challenges that get me out of my comfort zone but are doable for my level and I always leave the session feeling I have achieved something new. He's an awesomely good guy and each time, I'm reminded that skate is all about playing and having fun and I feel at ease even when the skatepark is full of really good skaters. A good skate session is always guaranteed! I couldn't recommend him more
I can't recommend Daryl enough as a skate coach. He's an incredible and accomplished skateboarder who is skilled in both street and ramp skateboarding, and along with this he is also an incredibly skilled skatecoach. Daryl has a complete understanding and communication of how skateboard tricks work, and how they are done in the easiest and the best way.
Having worked closely with Daryl, it’s evident his knowledge of skateboarding, as well as skateboarding ability, is second to none. From breaking down trick tips, too patiently guiding you through transition skating. He is very well spoken and easily relatable making him a brilliant person on and off the board but more importantly an outstanding coach for all ages. One day I hope he’s able to teach me his outrageously massive pop technique. Got a lot of time for this dude!
Very new to skating and 28 years old so a bit nervous about falling and hurting myself but daryl was very patient and attentive on our first few sessions, didn't do anything I wasnt ready to try and by the end of the first session I could do a fakie revert and roll up and quarter. Daryl himself is a very positive and understanding person, I would recommend to anyone of all skill levels as has been skating for more than half his life. 10 / 10
Daryl has coached my son for several sessions and he is awesome! He really gets his students to think about what they are doing, matching practical instruction with theory - he helps his students to understand why things work (or don’t!!). He is polite and respectful - and he really encourages his students to develop… And my son (16) - who focuses on street style - thinks Daryl is the best instructor he has ever had (and he had had a few!!).
Thanks Daryl - keep up the awesome work!!
