Learn all the tips and tricks to ride a skateboard like a pro

Whether you’re looking for a fun form of fitness, recreational activity, and even a method of transportation, skateboarding is a great action sport and healthy pastime. 

Originating in the United States in the 1940s, skateboarding as we know it today involves riding and performing tricks using a skateboard.

A few interesting facts about skateboarding:

 

-There are 11.08 million active skateboarders in the world

 

-It was an event for men and women at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo

 

-The market is worth ~$4.8 billion in annual revenue

 

With all of that said, there’s never been a better time to start learning skateboarding and hone your skills. The best thing you can do right now is to book your skateboarding lesson near me. At Superprof, you have access to tons of experienced and highly-rated driving teachers right at your fingertips. 

How long does it take to learn basic skateboarding? 

How long it takes to learn skateboarding changes from person to person. It ranges from as little as 1 hour to 2 full days to start getting comfortable on your board.  

For those who need a bit more time, it’s often learning to stand and balance that takes some time. Regardless of how quickly you pick up the basics, to really excel your need to practice, practice, practice! 

How should a beginner learn to skateboard? 

There are a few important things beginner skateboarders should learn: 

 

1. First, Learn to Fall Safely – It’s inevitable that all skateboarders, especially new ones will fall, so don't be afraid. But, one of the things that will help is training and developing a proper falling technique! That’s right, there is a proper way to fall. Just:

-Skating at low speed toward a grass field

-Step off the board

-Run or roll over the cushioned surface

 

2. Get the Basics Down – First things first - without mastering these basic riding skills, you should not progress. So, you’ll need to figure out how to :

-Push

-Turn

-Do tic-tacs

-Slow down/stop

 

3. Practice the Ollie – The ollie is a skateboarding trick where the rider and board come airborne without the use of the rider's hands. It combines stomping the tail of the skateboard off the ground to get the board vertical, jumping, and sliding the front foot forward to level out the skateboard at the peak of the jump. The ollie is a fundamental skill in skateboarding as beginner, intermediate, and advanced skateboarding tricks all come from it. Thus, it typically takes a lot of practice to learn. Since it might take time to land it for the first time, try practicing it stationary on the grass at first. 

 

What size skateboard should I get for my height and weight?

It's crucial that you find a board that is built for your height and weight. If you’re small, you’ll want a smaller board. If you’re a taller adult, you’ll need a full size board. 

Deck width is the aspect of your board that changes depending on the rider. Even the small measurement difference of .25 inch can make a big difference in the way the board feels underneath you. 

Here are our recommended board sizes: 

 

-If you’re 5 ft 6 inches or taller, get a board size of 8.00” to 8.50”

 

-If you’re between 4 ft 6 inches and 5 ft, 6 inches, get a board size of 7.75” to 8.00”

 

-If you’re 4 ft 6 in or shorter , get a board size of 7.25” to 7.75”

What protection do you need when skateboarding?

When skateboarding and doing tricks, you should definitely protect yourself from bad falls whenever possible. So wear the standard safety gear, including:

 

-a helmet

 

-wrist guards

 

-elbow and knee pads

What is the average age of skateboarders?

The average age of skateboarders is 13 - 14 and 60% are under 15.

Am I too old to learn how to skateboard?

While it's definitely a more youthful sport, anyone at any age can learn skateboarding. 

If you’re an older skateboarding student, don’t worry! It can be awkward to feel out of place, but trying to learn a new skill is an admirable goal. 

Just make sure you're safe and avoid risk. It will take months before you get the hang of it and it might even take years before you do your first ollie.

Are you serious about taking skateboarding skills to the next level? Consider a private instructor. Here’s how they can help:

1. Instructors Correct Your Form: A skateboarding instructor will ensure from the get go that you build your skateboarding habits from the base up with proper form, so you never have to go back later to re-learn. Using the right techniques is the only way to make the most of all your hard work and training. A private instructor will be by your side making suggestions on appropriate tweaks to perfect your form.

2. Instructors Provide Personalized Training: Looking to learn tricks or compete? Skateboarding training changes depending on your goal and no two skateboarders come to the table with the same life experiences and preferences. A private instructor will help you develop a training plan catered to your specific wants and needs. 

3. Instructors Hold You Accountable & Motivate You: It’s not always easy to stick to a consistent routine, especially one as physically and mentally demanding as skateboarding. When you just don’t feel like it, or are close to calling the quits, having an instructor to hold you accountable and help motivate you until the end will do wonders. With a scheduled lesson, you’re much less likely to cancel when you’re not in the mood. In addition, you’ll develop a relationship with your instructor where you aspire to make them proud. Having a support system by your side through your ups and downs will motivate you to grow.

 

Now that you know a bit about skateboarding and the importance of working with an instructor, it’s time to find the right instructor for you. Check out the ratings of each instructor and read their bio to find one that will work best for you. Make a commitment to your physical and mental health today and find a skateboarding coach that will help you put your best foot forward.
