Penny Boarding

Group Lessons

You will be joined by other keen Penny Boarders, all learning at the same time and easily motivated by the power and enthusiasm of everyone involved! Remember, you are never too clumsy or too unconfident!

We guarantee to get you Penny Boarding while building your confidence and most importantly making sure you are having fun. Although Penny boarding looks quite intimidating at first, when you see someone fly past you, it is not as hard as it looks. It’s simple things like learning to step on and off the board safely, basic foot position and posture that makes a big difference and ultimately gets you rolling.
