💗 This course supports women in the early stages of their skateboarding journey to feel CONFIDENT & full of FREEDOM on a skateboard.

💗 At the end of the 6 week course you will feel empowered to live life to the full as a female skateboarder, be connected to a like-minded crew, and experience a deeper appreciation for being in flow with your skateboard.

💗 We will teach you fundamental skills to make you feel confident in your technique, so you know you are on the right path.

 💗 We teach a system to help you stay consistent on your journey, bringing more fun and joy to your life. As well as simple but effective practices to ensure self doubt and limiting beliefs don't hinder your success.

 💗 This course is based around Manaakitanga, the act of taking care or looking after (yourself and others). Learning to skateboard as a woman is a form of self-love; a time for you to learn something new and build upon a creative outlet to help you feel in flow with your life.
