Niko D. from Alexandria, Virginia!

Niko is a skater in Alexandria, Virginia. He spent two summers as a skate instructor for American Inline. He taught beginners the fundamentals including safety and basic maneuvers. He also taught intermediate skaters how to turn, pump, drop in, do manuals, and do ollies. The students he taught were from ages 6-to 14 but he is open to teaching any age.  Skateboarding is his passion and he has been skating for the past six years. He is passionate about growing the skate community and is open to anyone who wishes to learn. He is able to teach any style of skateboarding the student would want to learn. Including but not limited to vert, flat-ground, and grinding.  He is an open-minded and patient instructor, who works to build not only skill and understanding but also confidence when skating. He also has a good sense of humor and works hard to make it a fun learning environment.    He can be found skating in the D.C area and most frequently found at Wakefield in Annandale, Schuyler Skatepark in Alexandria, and Powhatan Springs in Arlington.  When he is not skating, he will be attending NOVA Community College as a Sophomore. His schedule for teaching is very flexible.  During these uncertain times, Niko will also be fully following all CDC guidelines for safety.


Skateboarding is a recreational activity, a work of art, or a method of transportation. Skateboarding has been shaped and influenced by many skateboarders throughout the years. A 2023 report by American Sports Data discovered there are 18.5 million skateboarders in the world. 85 percent of skaters polled who had used a board in the previous year were under the age of 18, and 74 percent were male. Those numbers have have doubled since the time of the study. In the ensuing years the physical locations of skate parks have more than tripled making it more accessible as privately owned parks and indoor parks are coming into the picture.

The most significant change has been the generation that skateboarded in their youth and have grown up with the “X” Games explosion into the global mainstream of competitive sports and sees it as a natural participation activity for their children led by X-Games Athletes who are affiliated and instruct for our brand and web site.
