Skateboarding looks so easy and is so much fun! But taking the first step onto the board takes some courage. This workshop is for anyone who wants to try out Skateboarding with a professional instructor. No worries: Safety will be the main focus from start to end.
This course is held by Robert Thiele, an absolute pro skateboarder and three times European Skateboard Slalom Champion. He has won competitions in Paris, Prague, Zürich or London. In 2021, he organized the Skateboard Slalom World Cup in Stuttgart. He has been skating without any major accident for 44 years.
In this class we will have a slow start - Safety First! The first step onto the board will be very careful, of course with professional assistance. After that we get things rolling, try different - slight - slopes, always with a helping hand by your side. For more advanced or more courageous participants, Robert has some exercises and tricks in stock. Step by step, the practice level will increase along the individual lines of everyone's bravery and self-assurance.
For practice, skateboards will be provided. If you have your own one, please feel free to bring it on.
