Kids Private Basics Lesson

Under 18 longboard classes are all about fun, building confidence and learning something new!


Service Description

Lesson Content: Lessons are tailored to children of all ages whether they’ve never stepped on a board before or they want to improve existing skills. We'll cover fundamental longboarding techniques, including balancing, carving, and braking via fun games. As students progress I also offer dancing and freestyle, pump track or sliding-specific classes. Sessions are completely tailored to what they’d like to learn. Lesson Time, Duration and Frequency: Kids' longboarding lessons typically last 45-60 minutes (age dependent!). Please try to arrive 10 minutes before the session to maximise time on the board rather than putting on protections. The initial session gets you going but I recommend keeping the momentum and booking another session(s) within a few weeks or the next month once you've practised, to top-up technique and help you learn more dancing steps (as it can be hard off YouTube!). Equipment and safety: Please bring all protections, a helmet, elbow, knee and wrist guards. It gives them so much more confidence when learning. If we are sliding I can lend you slide gloves. Please bring their board if they have one. If your child doesn't have their own longboard that’s not a problem, I have options I can bring with me, just put this in the form when booking. In advance of the session I will send a compulsory waiver for you as the parent/guardian to sign on their behalf.  Location: Depending on the lesson we will be at: - Ashton Gate Stadium for basics, dancing and freestyle - Ashton Court for sliding (https://maps.app.goo.gl/GUCRC3DxkVMD5Lpr5) - Brunel Way Pump Track for your first pump track lesson(s). Future lessons can be at other pump tracks across Bristol. Your teacher: My name is Danielle and I LOVE longboarding 🛹 I co-founded @BristolGirlsLongboard, a women's skate community in 2020 and I also work part-time at Vandem Longboard Shop in Bristol. I'm staff for Longboard Girls Crew UK and Longboard Girls Crew Global. I've had the pleasure of teaching hundreds of people over the years and have completed specialised training with Skate GB, Skateistan and The Good Push. I have enhanced DBS, NSPCC Safeguarding and outdoor first aid qualifications. Let's get rolling :)
