Try your hand at skateboarding with the family at an introductory session, led by pro Vans skateboard tutors.

This introductory lesson will introduce you to skateboarding, helping you feel comfortable on the board and understand basic safety techniques. Alongside this you can expect to be familiarised with different aspects of skate culture and history, gaining an understanding of what skateboarding is and can be.

The lessons will be provided by professional Vans skateboard tutors and riders. The friendly, easy-going team will be ready to help you feel safe and confident on a skateboard. If you are a little more confident on the skateboard the instructors will make sure to discuss your aims and expectations to progress in the skateboarding world. 

No experience is necessary, and all genders are welcome. If this is your first time stepping on a skateboard, no problem! All ages and abilities are welcome and all equipment will be provided. The experienced and professional riders will be there to guide you step by step.
