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.
