Ricky began skating in 2010, taking an interest in freestyle after seeing Rodney Mullen on an old episode of “That’s Incredible”. After researching and seeking out someone to show him some basics he met Ben Farquhar (L.A. Freestyler) who helped him get started. Practicing 2 hours a day got him at a proficient enough level where he could start competing in Freestyle contests like The World Round Up held each year in Cloverdale, BC.(Canada). Ricky also learned a bit of bowl and park skating from legendary Badlands skater Micke Alba and was a student of his for a year and a half. Ricky has been able to meet and skate with some really notable skateboarders. Through his shared love for Freestyle skating he’s made good friends with top Freestyle pro like Russ Howell, Kevin Harris, and others. 

Ricky knows lots of basics and can get anyone interested in skating. Through is years of work in the customer service industry, Ricky knows how to talk with people and is very patient, honest, and helpful. 

 

From board set-ups and skate gear, to the skateboarding history it can surely be said that Ricky has done his homework when it comes to skating! Though he cannot tre-flip down a triple set he does have an unusual bag of skate tricks that sets him apart easily at a skatepark. He can also teach you how to drop in, and how to carve around a park and just get comfortable with your skate basics. All of this is key to moving on to the tough street and ramp tricks in the skating world. Most important though, you will have fun!

 

Back in 2013 Ricky started California’s only official unofficial annual freestyle jam. It’s held every January right after New Years and freestylers call it The Jan-Jam. This year was the 5th. It’s a loosely organized get together where freestylers share tricks and have fun. Ricky brings free snacks, drinks, and a boombox and any who attend just skate from noon til’ dusk. It’s proving quite popular and is becoming a great way for SoCal Freestylers and anyone near town to get connected and skate. It’s also a nice kickoff to World Round Up training season!

Born in California, many of David’s
friends growing up knew how to skate.
When he moved to the Chicagoland area at age eight, he had nobody to
skate with!  Most friends were not
interested nor were they ever introduced to skateboarding and were probably
told by their parents it’s too dangerous.

About 10 years ago he bought his
first longboard and absolutely fell in loved for the cruisability factor.
  He then got another, and then some more-
David wanted to try out all the different shapes and lengths and wheel sizes to
learn the difference of feel under his feet.

Eventually his creative side took over and he began carving wood and
building his own decks from scratch; because what he wanted did not exist.

Now that David has a fleet of
boards, one for just about any situation; his friends started taking interest
and finally wanted to learn.
  He began
giving lessons to friends who now have their own boards and are cruising the
streets and bike paths of Chicago with confidence.

David’s meticulous instructional
skills have proven to get people kicking, carving and pumping quickly.

In addition to teaching a strong
foundation for the basics, he also has a wide spread of boards you can try.
  The smallest being only 15” to 9’ 6”
long.
  From experience David has found the
larger and heavier the board the better to learn with because it’s more stable
under your feet, way less jerky and provides the ultimate smooth ride with the
added flexibility of the long wood and large wheels.
  Drop deck boards are also great, providing a
lower center of gravity; easier on one’s squat leg and better balance while
pushing.

With David’s patience and will to
open the world of skating to more people, he will safely teach you a solid
foundation that will enable you to take the sport in any direction your heart and
wheels desire.

As a kid I never played team sports I was usually hanging out with myself until I found skateboarding at that point all I cared about was for wheels and a board I learned everything I knew from an instructor at a local skatepark I use my skateboard as my main transportation for most of my teenage years the only reason that I ever wasn’t skating is because as I got older I was responsible for paying for my own skateboards two of my friends and Main skating Buddies were approached with offers from professional companies to skate for them I know just about everything you could know about skateboarding and I still skate to this day almost 15 years later

There are many areas of concern when choosing a personal instructor for any activity, for whatever skill level desired. Safety being the first and most important, you also want to know that your instructor is confident in his or her own abilities in order to have full confidence in them. Being comfortable knowing that you will get your trainer’s full attention and effort are key as well. After all of those factors, we want to have fun right!? Well, rest assured that when you book a session with Vincent, your worries will be extinguished. Close attention to safety detail, an aptitude for progress and success are some of the qualities Vincent brings to each and every training session. You set the pace for your own learning curve. No judgment, EVER!

Alex has skated for 7 years and continues to do so. He is an intermediate level skateboarder himself, and retains the ability to do intermediate level tricks (ollie, kickflip, heelflip, 360 flip), as well as performing all of them in the switch stance. He is a college student with a great deal of responsibility and is incredibly family oriented. He is good with kids, and retains a great deal of patience for those that may not learn quickly. He would be honest in his opinion regarding whether or not the student is progressing at a reasonable pace for the amount of lessons provided or if there should be more practice/time dedicated outside of lessons in order to see improvement.

I’ve been skating for 13 years and at 31 years old I’ve skated with all age groups at a variety of locations. I’ve always encouraged the youth to never give up skating   because skateboarding is such a rewarding and amazing physical activity. I have a 3 year old stepson whom I train to skate on a regular basis. I’ve got a steady job and a Bachelor’s degree and a vehicle and I’m always on time to any job I have to be at. Also safety has always been important no matter what physical activity I engage in especially for new skaters. I love seeing people progress at skateboarding as it reminds me of when I was a kid and started from scratch.

 

Not packing my bags just yet.

I’m Joshua Mace, a 27-year-old graphic design student who enjoys skating on a daily basis as means of exercise and stress release. Skateboarding offers great potential to young people as a means of improving confidence and self-reliance. While not a team sport in itself, it is the culture of skateboarding that provides a backdrop for our youth to relate to, all while giving them an outlet for creative expression and personal growth.
