Ocean Beach Surf & Skate now offers an instructional skateboarding program that provides lessons, camps and clinics to skateboarders of all skill levels, ages 4 to 14. Our comprehensive instruction includes fundamental skill development taught in a progressive sequence that helps beginners learn to skate and intermediate skaters learn to rip. Our lessons focus on balance and position, proper technique and mechanics as well as specific tips and tricks all taught by our staff of professional skateboarders and experienced instructors.
In addition to the mini ramp inside of our shop, we also hold lessons, clinics and birthday parties on our portable, outdoor skatepark as well as at Robb Field Skatepark. Students are taught a curriculum featuring the mastery of all basic tricks including ollies, kickflips and shuv-its. We also work with beginner skaters to learn to drop in and ride the bowls. Our “Drop in Special” features a progression that will lead any student through the skills necessary to drop in on a mini ramp, half pipe or bowl. We also offer lessons to more experienced skaters who want to improve their skating to a competitive level. Our instructors are committed to each students’ success and devote individual attention to all participants. Our proven instruction method allows every student to build confidence and achieve their goals.
$75.00 for a 90 minute Lesson is offered daily- including an introduction to safe skating, fundamentals of skating and as many tricks as they want to learn.
Our certified instructors use our proven skill progressive method so that kids can slowly advance to the next level, safely and within their level of comfort.
Safety equipment is available on a first-come first serve basis. Parents are encouraged to bring their child, with his or her own skateboard they intend to use.
