Lets learn Skateboarding

  • Jun 14, 2014 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


Skateboarding is back again! Open to all age groups ...


Skateboarding is an action sport which involves riding and performing tricks using a skateboard. Skateboarding has been shaped and influenced by many skateboarders throughout the years

With the evolution of skateparks and ramp skating, the skateboard began to change.


This session will introduce you to skateboarding for beginners while those who are more comfortable with the board can learn new tricks.

Some of the basic tricks are  two-dimensional freestyle manoeuvre like riding on only two wheels ("wheelie" or "manual"), spinning only on the back wheels (a "pivot"), high jumping over a bar and landing on the board again, also known as a "hippie jump", long jumping from one board to another, (often over small barrels or fearless teenagers), or slalom. 

Please come in comfortable clothes and flat shoes. (canvas shoes will do. Sport shoes might not be very comfortable)

Please be on time and No Shows will be strictly not entertained.

      Hi Sai,
      We haven't been able to post skateboarding meet ups after that, due to prior commitments to monsoon trekking events. I will get back to you after consulting Viswajeet about the same.
      Thank you

    Pros:
    The organizers and the coach are cool. Very fun event. Its very thoughtful initiative of quiksilver to organize such an event since skateboarding is not so popular here.

    Cons:
    Just the place. The floor is only 25% smooth and small rocks & pebbles everywhere. I would ask the organizers to scout for a new place if possible.
    -Thanks.
