checkList to prepare for skateboarding

  1. Be sure to bring your properly sized and well-maintained trick skateboard and protective gear. Or rent them from us at least 24 hours in advance of your lesson via the Sk8Gym Online Rental Shop
  2. Make sure your board is not excessively damaged: chips, cracks, rusting/ water damaged, griptape missing or peeling off, coned wheels, broken bearings. Superficial scratches are not of concern, they are actually very common as skill progresses.
  3. Arrive early to suit up protective gear before the start of the lesson
  4. Clothing - gym style wear provides added comfort when skateboarding (pants advised for leg protectition)
  5. Shoes - skateboarding shoes recommended. Low-soled sneakers will also work. Slip-ons not recommended. All laces & straps must be tight
  6. Bring plenty of drinking water
  7. Apply sunscreen prior to outdoor lesson or class
