Caleb W. from Norfolk, Virginia!

My name is Caleb. I have been skateboarding for about 8 years now and it’s something I’m so passionate about. Everything about skateboarding is so amazing to me and it’s a great art to learn because there are no boundaries. Skateboarding has changed my life so much, and I hope to change many people’s life’s teaching them how to skate.

Anthony C. from Norfolk, Virginia!

Anthony would be a great skateboard instructor with more than a decade of skating under his belt he’s learned the proper techniques for skating comfortably and how to teach others to do the same. Anthony not only knows how to skateboard, but he knows about the rich history and subculture as well.


Skateboarding is a pastime activity, an art form, or a method of transportation. Skateboarding has been molded and influenced by many skateboarders throughout the ages. A 2002 report by American Sports Data found there are 18.5 million skaters in the world. 85 percent of skateboarders polled who had used a skateboard in the previous year were under the age of eighteen, and 74 percent were male. Those numbers have doubled since then. In the coming years the skate parks have more than tripled making it more accessible as privately owned skate parks and indoor skate parks are coming into the picture.

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