  • Our last Skateboarding session went over so well, our participants asked us to add another session! Youth and Adult beginner skateboard camps are on Saturdays at Pier Park skatepark.  We have two sessions remaining, July 15-29 and September 9 – September 23. With Ted Schwallie coaching these classes, they are sure to be a blast! I’m really looking forward to hosting this program, as skateboarding holds a special place in my heart. Class sizes are limited. Cost is $50 for 3 classes on Saturday mornings. If the course dates don’t work with your schedule we offer private sessions or we can also prorate you for classes that you can attend.
