Surfskating is a form of skateboarding that feels more like surfing or snowboarding, with lovely flowing turns. It's great for honing your surfing technique and, more importantly, it's really fun!
These sessions begin with a gentle warm up and a review of safety tips, including how to get on and off a surfskate safely, when stationary and when moving.
You'll then begin to learn some gentle turns and carving - usually people are enjoying the flow of surf skating within 10-15 minutes!
Exercises with cones will then help to build good turning technique, and surfskate pumping technique, which helps you generate your own speed without putting your foot down. These sessions are full of fun activities to make the most of your new surfskating skills!
Some sessions will have ramps out to get you off to a good start with riding on ramps safely and with style.
"We would like to give 5/5 for Pete's coaching session for sure. He is professional, friendly, and supportive. He checked every aspect before our session, and prepared all the boards and protective kits for us. The one hour session is well planned, from basic how-to to the fun 'wave-riding' experiences. Highly recommend!"
