Skateboarding is beautiful. It can be magical, fun and rewarding. Sure it can also be difficult but lots of things are more more rewarding when there’s a challenge.
One of the most exciting things about skateboarding is there are no rules whatsoever. There is no book you have to follow in order to participate. You just get out there ahead and forge your own path.
It can however be a little overwhelming simply knowing where best to start. A few basic tips early on in your skateboarding life can help you learn things faster and also skate safer. Learning to stop, carve, pump, drop-in and ollie should be on your first to-do list.
We’re very fortunate to have two excellent places where you can have Nottingham skateboarding lessons. Places that offer skateboarding schools and where you can receive some real help with the basics. When you’re ready to explore further check out the list of other skateparks in Nottingham.
