"As an adult, there aren't many times you can check out and do something for yourself. [Skateboarding is] just so rewarding on so many levels!" Adult Lesson Participant
Is it safe?
There is naturally some apprehension around learning to skate as an adult (or shaking off the rust from childhood skate days), but with the right supports in place, skateboarding can be exhilarating AND safe, as well as a huge stress-reliever! With proper equipment, thoughtful instruction, and physical support, anyone can learn to ride a board. Give it a try and find out for yourself!
Hmm... But is this right for me?
Everyone will be coming into the lesson with a different degree of skill. Skateboarding is best learned in the company of a friendly, encouraging peer group, and Impact is the perfect place to get the support you need!
Learning to skateboard can help you and your child form a greater bond by working toward a common goal, and overcoming challenges as a team. However, these lessons are not only for people with children. Many adults are interested in trying a non-traditional activity, but have not had the opportunity to do so. Although skateboarding is an individual pursuit on the surface, community and camaraderie play a significant role in helping us progress, which is why it's so much more effective (and fun) to learn together!
