Urban longboard is an opportunity For parents and Their children To learn the basics of riding and the fundamentals of safety while riding on a longboard. LOngboarding is not a team sport per say, but ideally we’d like to introduce lesson 2 in about 6 months. Let’s grow as a team! Once i am confident in the progression, i will create an intermediate program.

I started skateboarding at the age oF 10. It changed my life by HelpIng me get the conFiDence i needed. It Boosted my skill in traditional team sports as well like football,soccer and baskeTball.

i have been riding weekly ever since i moved to japan. for the past 8 years of living (in yokohama), i’ve been researching the best ways on how to mentor youth on how to ride safely to help them in areas that i struggled wIth as a youngster. Combining that researcH With decades of experience back in canada, I’ve decided To implement these strategies this year. i’m happy to share thIs knowledge to help others discover the advantages Of knowing how to longboard saFely.

Where will it be?

i am very nostalgic. For that reason, I’ve decided to have our yokohama session in front of our 1st house in japan. it is where my own children learned to hone their riding confidence. at this park, there’s a big open area that is vehicles-free Along with a nice pathway beside the nearby cAnal. also, the pathway has no vehicles, and little to no foot traffic.
