What our customers are saying

Alexander, Cambridge

Convenient lessons which work around your schedule. The Skates and Ladders team were incredibly cooperative and made organising lessons hassle free. We were able to organise our lessons at our local skatepark so we didn’t have to travel far. My 12 year old Son’s instructor was super friendly and patient and helped him to improve his abilities on his skateboard much quicker than I anticipated. Most importantly, my Son had lots of fun.

Andrew King

My 10 year old son and 12 year old daughter had their first lesson with Jack and loved it. Jack was really approachable and made it fun. He taught them the basics, which really gave them confidence and then some cool things like flipping the board and landing on the deck.

They had a great time and just wanted to get out their boards as soon as we got home. We will definitely be booking up more lessons.

The skate area in the park was safe and big for them to practice. Meeting up with Jack was easy. We phoned on arrival but he was clearly the one that looked like a skate boarder!

Anya, London

It’s a fun and exciting alternative to your typical Sunday morning football club. It provides a great alternative to kids who perhaps aren’t interested in the typical sports taught at school. My son has never been a big football fan and this has given him an alternative way to stay active.


Bradley, London

Josh was incredibly easy to work with over the phone. He responded to our emails incredibly quickly and helped us get our lessons organised quickly too. He was also able to give us great advice on what skateboard we should buy for our son. Our instructor was enthusiastic and made the lessons look like a lot of fun. I really wanted to step in and have a go myself! I would definitely recommend Skates and Ladders to anyone looking to learn to skateboard.

Chloe Morris

I just wanted to say thanks so much for the skateboard party/lesson yesterday. The kids were really delighted and had such a great time….the adults thoroughly embarrassed themselves in comparison but we had fun trying!
We were so impressed with how they engaged the kids and kept everyone busy and happy. There have been lots of claims of ‘best party ever’ and I suspect my younger son will be wanting a repeat performance in the summer!

Chloe, Nottingham

As a student, it can be hard to find the time to work around the demands of university work and social life. Skates and Ladders made it easy to sort my lessons at a time that was easy for me and helped make it affordable too. Nice one guys, thank you.

Christine, London

My friend told me about your lessons which she had bought for her son, so I thought that it would be a good idea to book some lessons for my boy, and we haven’t looked back since. Tom is always super excited for his lessons and always has a grin from one side of his face to the other after every lesson. Friendly instructors and fun lessons. Tom has a new found love for skateboarding and is always asking me when the next lesson is. A big thank you to the Skates and Ladders team.

Darius, Milton Keynes

I tried using Youtube videos to teach myself how to skateboard, but the difference of actually having someone there with you to guide you through what you need to do and pointing out your mistakes to you makes a world of difference. I have improved loads since I began my lessons with Skates and Ladders. The instructors clearly have a vast knowledge of skateboarding and they are able to tailor the lessons around you and what you want to learn. If you are interested in just learning to get from A to B or whether you want to learn tricks, these are the guys for you.

Elizabeth, London

Even after 6 lessons, the kids can’t seem to get enough. They keep asking me to book them more. The kids are having an absolute ball! They are progressing so fast and are still interested and keen to learn more. I haven’t seen the kids so dedicated and focused before. Thanks Skates and Ladders, you’ve made me a very proud Mum!

Emilie, London

Great way to keep the kids occupied on the weekends! The instructors are friendly and organising lessons is hassle free!
