I started skateboarding 13 years ago at the age of 12 and have been heavily addicted to everything skateboard related since then. After finishing school I went on to pursue a career in instructing board sports, achieving my level 1, 2 & 3 snowboarder instructor, allowing me to train future instructors, alongside doing summer seasons teaching surfing in Newquay.

Instructing has always been something that I have loved to do, being able to share my passions with those who wish to learn!

I have always found myself giving tips to friends and younger skaters, using all of the teaching techniques which have been firmly ingrained in me since I left school.

There is nothing that makes me happier than seeing the younger kids, AKA the future generation of skaters finding that same love I did back when I was younger, and putting all of their energy into skateboarding.   

I believe that I am extremely good with younger kids in particular because I am a big kid at heart and I can fully relate to the excitement and drive they have to go skate!

The local skatepark "Concrete Waves" (in Newquay) done by Mavericks Skateparks may be a world class skatepark and an amazing place to learn and improve skateboarding but to some it can be very nerve racking turning up at the skatepark for the first time, unsure of where to start and worried about what others may think of them being a beginner and making mistakes.

For this reason my beginners lessons start from the absolute basics, which may include things as simple as putting a skateboard together, standing on it and learning to push, all of which can be done just about anywhere. I know for a fact that there are a whole load of people out there who either want to jump on a board for the first time, or maybe you can already do a handful of things on your board but wish to learn some new stuff!

I can help by seeing each individuals weaknesses and strengths, which allows me to share ideas with my students, breaking down each and every move, controlling everything from where your feet are on the board, to where your eyes need to be looking.

Skateboarding can offer a sense of well being, give people structure, goals to aim for, confidence and the opportunity to make friendships and unite people. I have tonnes of experience in both street skateboarding and transition based (ramps) skateboarding so the lessons I offer are completely customisable depending on the student.
