FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


What is the skateboarding club?
Our skateboarding club is a new holiday club for children aged 6-14 years old and living in and around London.

With our highly trained tutors in a funky, cultural venue we aim to teach kids the basics of skateboarding, whilst allowing them to make new friends, learn skilful tricks, and maintain an interest in a type of exercise that is fun to do.

What if I’m a beginner?
Then this is the club for you! Our tutors tailor the programme to the ability levels of the children involved and to the rate at which they progress. It means both skilled and beginners can benefit and develop at their own rate without keeping up with any schedule. Furthermore the skate park is undercover keeping all the ramps dry and safe for the novice skateboarders to skate on.

How is the skateboarding club structured?
The first thing we do is ensure that all children gather and put on their equipment needed for the day.

They are put into groups and allocated a tutor based on the child’s ability. It is then serious fun for the whole day. The tutors will show the children how to get on and off the board, half pipe and roll stop as well as other cool tricks! There is also plenty of opportunity to make new friends as we encourage our children to ride freely with other skaters.

If your children want to experience trying out different ramps or learning a selection of tricks, then we recommend booking for a few days rather than just the one day.

What do the children need to bring with them?

  • Children can bring their own skateboard, helmets and knee, wrist and elbow pads however they are given out to each child if they do not have equipment of their own. We do recommend to bring your own helmet for maximum comfort.
  • Suitable clothing - T-shirts, lose fitting jeans and baggy jumper are usually the best
  • Coat or warm clothing for outdoor skating
  • Comfortable trainers
  • Spending money (optional) as there is a drinks and snack machine
  • Packed lunch as there is no restaurant in the facilities.
  • Water or high energy drinks as skateboard is quite thirst quenching. Mobile or camera if they want to photograph or film their friends

Can my child bring their own mobile, iPod, MP3 or portable games console?
Due to security and potential damage that can be caused during skating we would urge children to be extra vigilant with their belongings. If they are brought along we waive any responsibility if your child’s valuable items are damaged, lost or stolen. We would also ask that they are turned to silent or turned off so as not to distract your child or others whilst they are in skating.
