Jarrett is a long time skateboarder with in-depth knowledge of how to use a board and use it safely. He doesn’t fall much or cause injury to himself, because throughout his skate career he has learned to fall correctly, wear protective gear, insight on how to keep balance even when going at high speeds, and ways to do tricks in a way that will have a less likely chance of hurting himself and others around him. He is able to teach the basics and also more advanced techniques to better help understand and/or just feel comfortable on the board. He has knowledge and able to teach students to have situational awareness in all sorts of environments from skate parks to street skating. For him, being an instructor means teaching students the value, positives/negatives, of skating in a safe and controlled environment until they are ready for the next step, to take on parks by themselves and feel comfortable and eventually they will feel better about them going out and skating! Parents (if the students are still to young to be out by themselves), our mission is to keep you’re child safe and supervised the entire time, to make sure you are with us every step of the way, we want you to be just as happy with us as the student is, Skateboarding is all about happiness, building friendships, learning that struggling is a part of life and makes you stronger and to keep pushing through everyday and not to give up!

I am a lifelong skateboarder. After more than 25 years of pushing wood, I can proudly say that I’m part of a global community of skateboarders upholding an unspoken creed of friendship, achievement, and style. I’ve skateboarded at nearly 100 different skateparks around the world, and have never lost a trick. Pushing 40, I am still learning to this very day. I could think of nothing better than to have the opportunity to impart my experience, wisdom, and passion for this sport on to the next generation.

Students will receive from me not only a fiercely passionate skateboarder who has dedicated thirty years to the craft, but a wholly unique perspective to skateboarding cultivated by a life both on and off the skateboard. I firmly believe that learning how to ride a skateboard teaches an individual valuable other life lessons that can be carried over into other avenues of one’s life, as my own life is a testament to that. 

Skateboarding is ultimately about going out of one’s own comfort zone to accomplish something not previously achieved, and whenever a skateboarder does this, he or she creates a new reality altogether for themselves while having fun along the way…. For me, I have gone outside of my comfort zone in skateboarding into my personal life to make connections with some of the greatest skateboarders in all of skateboarding: hall of famers, X-Games gold medalists, etc… all as an outsider originally from Chicago, IL who through sheer perseverance and interpersonal skills made his way to such notable figures in skateboarding as Jake Brown (X-Games gold medalist and skateboarding hall of famer), Elliott Sloan (X-Games Gold medalist), Don Brown (former freestyle professional and president of Soletech [eS, Emerica, Etnies]), and most notably– Daewon Song: 2006 Thrasher SOTY and arguably the greatest skateboarder ever to ride a skateboard. 

While learning a trick is important, making sure it looks and feels properly is as important to me while also maintaining safety, and the reason why my tricks look and feel a certain way and why I insist when someone lands a trick it should look and feel a certain way is because style in skateboarding is ultimately about biography, and because I have a unique biography, my style will inevitably be unique, and with my coaching, I will ensure that other people that learn to skateboard from me will infuse their skateboarding with their own biography. Please consider me for this position. I will not disappoint you.

As a skater myself I feel as though it’s great freedom to have, being able to grab your board and go out for a cruise. A true escape. Getting to grips with balance, consistency and patience. Skating helped me get away from a lot of the destruction that was happening around me. 

I started at BYC and I learned how to drop in, drop to fakey and take my time. I finally found a comfortability and confidence, something I strive to give any of my students. 

Teaching my students to feel it and getting to grips with being outside of their comfort zone starting from the ground up. Letting people have the freedom to explore without dictating everything, showing them how to have fun, be confident and let go.
