Skateboarder for 12 years, with 2 years teaching experience + two years snowboard instructing experience


I first gauge how experienced individuals are on a board through observation or by asking them a few questions. From here I proceed with a checklist of what I think the student needs to go through to improve their skateboarding in the correct way. Its essential when starting out that individuals learn the fundamentals in the correct order.


I have been skateboarding for over 12 years. I have been giving lessons since 2016, and have helped many people learn the basics of skateboarding. I break things down thoroughly, so that participants learn the fundamentals in the correct order.
