participants Price for 1 participant

A relatively modern sport, originated as 'sidewalk surfing' in California in the 1950s, Skateboarding was born out of surfing as something to do when there weren't any waves. It has gone on to establish itself as an individual sport. From Half pipes, to street skating, to high speed downhill slalom, skateboarding is forever evolving.

You may choose a Beginner Lesson, an Intermediate Lesson, or an Advanced Lesson.  A beginner lesson includes learning to stand on a skateboard, proper form and posture, turns, accelerations, stops, safety, proper falling ways, tail skits, acid drops and other easy fun tricks.  An intermediate lesson includes kick turns, carve, grind, tail drops, axle drops, axle stalls, weak ollies, and more! An advanced lesson includes ollies on a slanted structure, pop shove it, and other techniques such as ramp riding!

No matter what level you are, this is a great way to have fun and improve your skills.

The Skateboarding In Manhattan Xperience Certificate® is for one participant. You may be joined by additional participants at the park.
