As we do not offer any skate lessons we thought we'd recommend some great companies that do. They offer a range of different lessons for all levels of ability. Most of them teach in Hyde Park which is a 10 minute walk from the shop. If you don't have your own skates you can rent a pair from us, please see our Skate Hire page for full details.
Skates & Ladders
Skates & Ladders offer private lessons that allow you to move at your own pace and learn exactly what you want, with step by step advice from a dedicated instructor. They help you pick up the basics quickly and perfect your technique faster than learning solo, while keeping you safe and building your confidence! You can book private 1-to-1 lessons or private group lessons to learn with your friends. Whatever you prefer, we promise to get you rolling. Lessons are available seven days a week from 8.30am and take place at your choice of well-known London skate spots, public parks, skateparks or whichever location suits you. They also teach skateboarding too!
