We've taught kids as young as 2 up to adults in their 60's. Our general rule is if you are keen to learn and showing a genuine interest in skateboarding, then we are happy to teach. Our experience has taught us that under 5's respond better in a private 1-2-1 lesson with less distractions.
What should I wear?
We recommend comfy, loose fitting clothing that is not too precious and some flat soled trainers. Indoor lessons can get a little warm, so removable layers are advised.
What should I BRING TO MY LESSON?
Skateboarding can be strenuous so we always suggest you bring plenty of water and possibly a small snack as we don't generally offer refreshments on site.
I don't have a skateboard!?
We do have a selection of professional skateboards that you can use during your lesson, just let us know in advance if you need or just want to try one.
What safety equipment do i need?
You will need to supply your own helmet which is MANDATORY for under 18’s and highly recommended for all attendees. We do have a very limited amount of helmets available for use, just let us know in advance if you need one.
Knee/Elbow/Wrist pads are not essential, although some may like the additional confidence they bring, please supply your own.
What skateboard should I buy?
Buying a skateboard is a very personal thing and purchasing online can be a complete minefield of choice, quality and cost. Our general rule is to stay away from toy and sports shop skateboards. If it is below around £50, you seriously have to consider the quality, logevity and ease of use. We would always recommend visiting a local skateboard shop in person for professional advice and quality equipment.
Can i join your waiting list?
All our lessons are booked on a first come first served basis. Once a date/time has become fully booked, you can then join the waiting list for that specific date/time. You will be emailed when a space becomes available and will have approximately 15 minutes to book before the next person on the waiting list is offered the place. There is no obligation and you can join the waiting list of as many dates/times as you wish. Click HERE to view our booking site and latest schedule.
When are you releasing new lessons?
Recently we have seen a huge demand in the amount of people wanting lessons and therefore they get booked up very quickly. We are currently only putting out a limited amount of lessons at any one time and they are on a first come first served basis. If you would like advance notice of when new lessons will be added to our booking site, please join our MAILING LIST or keep an eye on our social media. We also update the header page of our booking site with the latest release dates. Click HERE to view our booking site and latest schedule.
what happens if it rains?
Leigh-on-sea skatepark is an outdoor venue and therefore lessons can be affected by last minute weather conditions. We do our best to give people as much notice of cancellations as possible and we aim to keep your account in credit and book a replacement lesson as soon as possible.
What is your cancellation policy?
If at least 48 hour's notice is given for cancellation, your account will be kept in credit which you can claim via a discount code.
If less notice is given and we can still fill your place, your account will be kept in credit minus an administration fee, otherwise full ticket cost will still be charged.
All no shows with no notice will be charged at full cost.
Booking site is asking for a password!?
We occasionally have to reschedule bookings and when doing so we password protect the booking so that only the person rescheduling can re-book that specific event. This is normally noted in the event title with either "Re-Scheduled" or " Password Protected" booking.
How do I cancel/Transfer my booking?
Although you can do this directly through your original booking confirmation with 48 notice, we would prefer that you CONTACT US via email to discuss/arrange so we can keep on top of all cancellations/transfers/discount codes.
