This course supports women starting their skateboarding journey to feel CONFIDENT & full of FREEDOM cruising on a skateboard?

At the end of the 6 Week Program 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.

Skateboarding fundamentals skills are taught 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 practises to ensure self doubt and limiting beliefs don't hinder your success.

Being Maori, Gina has based this course around Manaakitanga, the act of taking care or looking after. Learning to skateboard as a woman is a form of self love, its a time for you to learn something new and build upon a creative outlet to help you feel in flow with life.

The Manaaki Skate 6 week learn to skate program is broken down perfectly at a pace where you can build up your skills week to week in a positive and empowering way for women. Each week after listening to Gina’s positive and supportive words instantly encourages you to hop back on your skateboard and keep at it. Gina was always just an email away to answer any questions and has continued to support me afterwards and connected me to the Manaaki Skate Facebook group. Gina is more than a skate teacher, she is a coach, and has helped me gain a whole heap more than skating ; I have made a new friend, connected with an old friend, have an awesome hobbie to share with my fiancé and baby boy when he grows older and learnt a lot about myself on my skate boarding journey.

The Manaaki Skate Course has given me so much more than just skateboarding skills, I've gained self confidence, a new passion I can share with my family and it's been fun. The online courses are easy to follow at your own pace and the support has been amazing! Thanks Gina and the Wellness riders team x

I feel so grateful to have found the Manaaki Skate program and Gina. The online skate videos are  easy to follow, everything is broken down into manageable steps for progression and I like the reflection time to think about my unique skate journey. I have been so touched by Gina’s support.  She is a very special coach. Caring, inspiring and super motivating. I’ve learnt to go at my own pace, to take off the pressure and focus on having fun. I feel strong, happy and connected when I am out skateboarding. Thank you!!!
