Top Skateboard Lessons related questions

Skateboarding is beyond just your ordinary sport. It is a fun, challenging, and healthy activity that gives a range of positive effects on your physical and mental health. Apart from its weight-loss advantages, it also increases your flexibility skills and improves physical endurance, leading to a longer and healthier life. If you are exhausted at work or school, skateboarding also has the power to take your mind off the stress, allowing you to simply enjoy.

Choosing a skateboard depends on your personal preference and the skill you want to achieve. In case you are spending more of your time skateboarding on the streets or any flat roads, cruiser and longboard skateboards can give you a smooth and safe ride moving around or even going downhill. Meanwhile, those seeking to learn more tricks and flips should go for double kickboards, with two kicks installed at either end.

Preferably, but not required. For those thinking of skating frequently, it is ideal that you have your skateboard and bring it to class so you can start getting used to it. Otherwise, your Tasker can lend you a skateboard or help you rent one from nearby facilities. Some may also be willing to go to a store with you and help you purchase a skateboard, but you will need to confirm this with them before booking.

Most sports experts agree that surfing is more challenging than skateboarding. Not only do you need to balance your feet, but you also have to understand moving your weight and steering your boards to resist wave force effectively. Knowing how to swim is also an additional skill to learn if planning to take surfing lessons. With skateboarding, you only need good balance, plus you get to move and perform tricks on fixed, dry ground.

With private skateboarding lessons, you need to wear protective gear to avoid injuries and scratches while learning how to balance or execute tricks. Use helmet, knee and elbow pads, wrist guards and gloves, and also hip protection gear. As for your clothing, make sure to use flexible and comfortable garments that will not restrict your movements. You don’t necessarily need skate shoes, but you must wear durable and sport-friendly footwear.

Learning how to ride your board, balance, and move forward is easy and won’t take too long. For some, it only takes a day or two of one-hour lessons, while some spend a week or so. Once you’ve built the fundamental skills, it will be easier to learn other tricks like easy flips or even ollies. If you practice more days in a week with your Tasker, you can get good results in just a few skateboarding sessions.

What do skateboard lessons include?

Nearby skateboard lessons are perfect for both beginners and seasoned players who want to learn the basics or upgrade their existing skills. You can expect to learn various exercises tailored to your age and abilities. When learning to skate, you need good stamina to perform tricks successfully. In case you want to improve your physical endurance, feel free to combine your lessons with regular workouts from personal trainers! Here’s a better overview of some private skateboard lessons that you can book on our platform:

Beginner skateboard lessons for adults

Having the right instructor guiding you to the proper practices can help build and improve your skills without risking injuries. For complete beginners, skateboard lessons near you begin by practising your balance with your weight pressed on the centreboard. You also get to learn which foot to put forward, depending on your preference. Your instructor may require you to practice moving on flat grounds, starting from a single push then gradually increasing speed. After a few practices, expect to build confidence on the board without your skateboard instructor’s support.

Skateboarding is also a great way to burn calories and lose weight! On Airtasker, we can also connect you to a fitness expert who can create a step-by-step exercise regimen tailored to your goals and needs.

Beginner skateboard lessons for kids

Supposed your child starts showing interest in skateboarding. Don’t feel intimidated by the risks of the sport! Instead, book private lessons to help them hone their skills in the safest way possible. Here, they can practice supervised training in a controlled environment rather than in open skate spots or public parks. They learn primary balancing and figure out their stance before moving forward and around the area, slowly as if they’re walking. Your instructor may hold and assist them until they finally pick up the skills and confidently start moving independently. 

Advanced skateboard lessons

If you’re already confident with your balancing and skateboarding abilities, there is only one way to skill up. Book advanced skateboard lessons and train with someone who was expert knowledge! This course offers the perfect opportunity to learn more complex tricks like ollies, laser flips, gazelle flips, backside tailslide, and so much more. Suit up as you may be training in skate parks with ledges, rails, or whenever possible, on a vert ramp! Falling may be hard to avoid, but your instructor can teach you the correct way to fall and dodge injuries.  

If you have decided to join skateboarding competitions, don’t hesitate to use the Airtasker platform to find a private coach who can further train you and help you achieve your peak performance!
