Hi, my name is Ian. I’m 25 years old. I’m a college graduate from the Metropolitan State University of Denver. I’m looking to pursue my passion in skateboarding by teaching others how to skate. I would be a great instructor because I find gratification in teaching others what I love to do. Not only am I certified by GoSkate to become an instructor, but I also have over 12 years of experience in skateboarding.
I’ve been a local skater at Trails and Parker skatepark for the last 10 years. I understand all the obstacles and etiquette needed to keep your student safe. I’ve successfully taught all age groups from beginners to advanced. I’m a hype man! I like to get others pumped and excited to skate. I enjoy building other people’s confidence in skateboarding. I’m reliable and take my work professionally. I have a friendly personality and have successfully taught well with all age groups. I’m very descriptive and detailed about my instructions. I understand the fundamentals step by step procedures and the orders that need to be taught.
What you should expect to learn:
Lessons 1-4
1. The “Foundation.” Determine if you are goofy or regular stance. Learning how to push, turn, balance, foot placement, stop, fall, build confidence, common mistakes and how to avoid them, make corrections and understanding them, and everything else you need to safely ride a board on flat terrain.
2. Safety is my number one priority. I’ll start by ensuring all safety equipment are put on correctly. I will inspect your skateboard setup to make sure everything is safe to ride. I’ll go over the name of each component and the purpose of each one.
3. Once you have the basics of skateboarding down, I will teach you some beginner tricks. This includes how to ollie, tic tac, and ride on ramps. It is important that you first learn how to do the basics.
4. Students who progress quickly or who have demonstrated confidence and ability may progress to ramp tricks, grinds, and flip tricks. Some of the tricks I’m able to teach include: 50/50 grinds, pop shuv it, noseslides, tailslides, kickflips, heelflips, 180’s, 360’s, dropping in, and more.
Lessons 5-8
5. GoSkate recommends a minimum of 6-8 lessons for students who have high-interest levels in skateboarding. During these lessons, I focus on building plans that will help students reach a level by starting with foundational tricks and progressing into more difficult tricks.
My Promise: I’ll make it fun and most importantly safe for your student to learn how to skateboard. I guarantee they’ll become a better skater after just one lesson. I’m passionate about teaching others to skate and confident I’ll give you the experience you are looking for. Please consider me to become your next instructor as I know you won’t be disappointed. Let’s learn to skate!

Hi I’m Brandon Johnson and I am a great instructor because I have been skating for over 8  years now. I have hosted many skate events for long boarders in south Florida and I have taught many people how to skate before. I stay in Davie, but I am able to teach throughout Broward and Miami County. I am able to teach any age levels and even children with special needs. From the basics of pushing around to the adrenaline rush of going down ramps and doing tricks I am able to teach it all. I have previously taught lessons for the skateboard super cross division in Miami and I have experience as a camp counselor. Skateboarding is life to me, the bonds and friends I have made will be treasured by me forever and I wish to share these experiences with others.

It takes a lot to learn how to skateboard, a lot of it is mindset and attitude and after 10 years of skateboarding almost every single day, skateboarding has become a key part of my happiness in every day life. I can do just about anything on flat ground, I have a lot of quarter pipe tricks, a lot of ledge tricks, and some rail tricks but more importantly I have a positive and motivational mindset to bring to the table when it comes to skateboarding and really anything else that I do. Skateboarding is a trick that takes self motivation and self motivation, like skateboarding, Is also something I can teach.

Have you ever had to scream at your son saying “Get off the darn video games and go outside and play” Well I can understand what it feels like. Although I’m not a parent, I remember when I use to sit and play Xbox all day. One day I picked up a scooter and the rest became history. With almost 5 years of riding Scooters I am truly inspired to see the sport grow And with your son we can both help grow the scooter scene with his potential talent. With the years I been riding I strongly understand what dedication is and how to obtain success in the sport. I was never into the fame it could get me but I was mostly concerned in whether I can land the trick that  I’ve been trying for an hour. I would always hit up the skatepark and I was worried that I wasn’t gonna be able to post any clips for the 500 followers that I have had on Instagram. I can teach anywhere in New Jersey and anywhere in New York City. I accept all ages and anyone whether theywant to learn how to do basic tricksOr simply learn how to ride a scooter. Feel free to ********** whenever. Thank you!!
