Free Skateboard coaching for 2015 recommences this Sunday April 12th and we’ll be running the sessions every Sunday Morning that the wonderful English permits.

Last years lessons were so popular that we struggled to keep up with the demand so we’ve had to change the programme a little to keep things running as smoothly as possible.

The key to this is making sure you guys TURN UP ON TIME!
We won’t be letting slackers just join in as this really slows down everyone’s progress. Sorry to sound mean but we want everyone to make the most of these lessons so being punctual is important.

We’ll now be running 2 sessions each Sunday Morning : a beginners session and an improvers session.

 

Beginners Session 10am – 11am

If you’re totally new to skateboarding and need to learn the absolute basics then this session is for you.
We’ll aim to give you a swift introduction on how to stand on a board, how to keep your balance and how to safely get around the skatepark.

Improvers Sessions 11am- Noon

The improvers sessions are for those who have a bit more experience on skateboard and would like to know how to make better use of the skatepark .
You’ll need to be able to coast along comfortably, forwards and backwards and be able to push and turn on the flat. We’ll help you develop your skills into riding the bowl, keeping up speed up around the park and show you the basics of ollies and street skating tricks.

Important

 

  • If the weather is looking wet please check before travelling. We’ll update our Facebook/ Twitter with news on the sessions as we need dry weather to skate.
  • If you’ve got a board and pads, please bring them along
  • Please turn up at the allocated time as this give us the time we need to get everyone registered, padded up and ready for the sessions.
  • We have a limited range of skateboards and protective gear available for you to borrow so if you need to borrow anything please turn up before the sessions starts or drop us an email to arrange lessons@owp.org.uk
  • Parents/ Guardians must remain in the park while their kids taking part in the lessons.
  • The sessions are offered for free – if you can afford a donation to our charity we’d really appreciate it.

The Lakai team popped in this summer and promptly destroyed the park.
Cheers to Olly Ross for the edit

Skate coaching is getting busier and busier so make sure you turn up ON TIME for your lesson so we can get you padded up.
