Air Launches New Coaching Programme

We’re excited to announce the launch of our first official Air skate coaching programme with dedicated sessions for under 8’s and 8+ starting Saturday 20th June.

Each programme will run for 6 weeks with Air co-ordinator and qualified skateboard coach Ryan McNamara.

Through this new programme young riders will progress through levels 1 to 6 (beginners to intermediates) learning at their pace.

We’ll also provide participants with an introduction to skate park do’s and don’ts and the importance of safety first.

  • Level 1 beginners moves and techniques include:
    • Stance on a Board
    • Standing on a Board
    • Standing off a Board
    • 1 Push on a Board

then right through to Level 6 which includes:

  • Dropping in
  • Ollie 180 – rotating upper body, pop tale whilst unwinding upper body, scrape front foot up and land with bent legs.

Learn to board like our very own ROB MCKINNEY BELOW!
