Skateboarding is a leisure activity, a work of art, or a method of transportation. Skateboarding has been molded and influenced by many skateboarders throughout the years. A 2002 report by American Sports Data found there were 18.5 million skate boarders in the world. 85 percent of skateboarders polled who had used a skateboard in the previous year were under the age of 18, and 74 percent were male. Those numbers have since doubled. In the coming years the actual locations of skate parks have more than tripled making it more accessible as privately owned skate parks and indoor skate parks are becoming a reality.

The largest change has been the generation bubble that skated 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 sport for their children as led by X-Games Athletes who are affiliated and instruct for our brand and web site.

Brandon S. from Mechanicsville, Virginia!

My name is Brandon. I am 25 years old I am from the Richmond area and have been skating for 15 years now and I never plan to stop. I would be a great instructor because I know this sport like the back of my hand, I thought myself how to skate and I am well above average. I would definitely say I am more of a street skater than a vert skater, although I can do both. I know lots of flat ground tricks, flip tricks, spin tricks, grabs, and other uncommon tricks that you don’t normally see. I can grind and teach how to grind rails and ledges, I would eventually like to tutor my students once they are ready to handle rolling up to and Ollie down staircases before trying any other advanced tricks down staircases or handrails. So I’d love to be able to get someone to that level so please pick me as your awesome tutor for the great sport of skateboarding!!! Thank you.

Dylan H. from Midlothian, Virginia!

Hello, my name is Dylan! I have been skateboarding since I was 10 years old (20 years). I have grown up with an older brother who has taught me the ropes and taken me to skate spots, skate parks, and skate shops. Once I became old enough to drive, I began skateboarding more on my own and traveling to further places such as NYC, New Jersey, Florida, California, Ireland, Spain, Italy, & Amsterdam. During my journey, I’ve taught many fellow skateboarders tips and tricks here and there and found success in achieving their goals. I look forward to helping the next aspiring skateboarder in my area improve their abilities exponentially
