What you'll do
You will learn how to skateboard with a native New Yorker on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Afterward, you'll visit a local skate shop and meet the staff, grab some pizza, and then a drink at a skater-owned bar.
I have been teaching skateboarding with STOKED for almost 4 years now, and I’ve been skating since December of 2000. I've also been teaching skateboarding for 8 years outside of STOKED to people of all ages. Skateboarding can change your life! I'm a native New Yorker, and I love exploring my city's neighborhoods.
