Little Groms: Beginner Skateboarding (Ages 5-8)

Thursday, September 21, 2023

Learn the basics of skateboarding in a safe and fun environment! Little to no experience skateboarding is necessary. This course is designed for young participants (groms) potentially having their first experience with skateboarding. Students will be taught the components of a skateboard, proper safety equipment, skate park etiquette, determining stance: Regular or Goofy, and foot placement on the board. Students will begin practicing pushing, carving, keeping momentum, turning, and how to properly fall.

Ages 5-8. Helmets are required and pads are recommended. SK8 Charleston has skateboards, helmets, and pads (wrist guards, elbow pads, and knee pads) available for use at no additional cost during scheduled lessons. Skaters may use their own industry-standard equipment. Includes free admission into the skate park on the day of the lesson.

Group lessons require a minimum of 3 participants. Lessons will be canceled two business days prior to the scheduled lesson if they do not meet the minimum requirement.
