Adaptive Skateboarding

At Rad we believe anyone should have an opportunity to skateboard. We have created adapted skateboards to allow anyone and everyone to have a go at skateboarding. To practise what we preach, we have developed a steel skateboarding frame with a harness, skateboards with handles, and we also have some larger skateboards for those who may want a more stable skateboard.

We have run these sessions with individuals and disability providers. 

Just send us a message and we can facilitate these sessions with anyone who is keen.

Group Lessons

Group lessons are a fun way to learn how to skate with others at a similar level and make friends at the same time.  Our aim is to keep coach:student ratio at 1:5 with a max of 15 students per lesson. This ensures you/your child gets plenty of assistance as they learn to navigate different skatepark obstacles in a safe and fun way.

Rad skate school group lessons include:
Learning how to skate bowls, ramps and street.

Etiquette at the skatepark, such as ‘one person in the bowl at a time’ to help prevent unwanted slams/collisions.

Maintenance and skateboard setup choices (size of board/wheels, different brand features)

Preschool, first timer, beginners, intermediate, advanced and adult level classes are available.

Private Lessons

Accelerate your skateboard skills to the next level with our private lessons for one or two people.

We call these our ‘progression sessions’ because our students make so much (ahem. . . .well. . . . you know) progress.

You choose where you want to go (ramp, park, street) and what you want to learn. These sessions are super adaptable to you and your skill level.

One-on-one $60 per hour

Two students $85 per hour

Three students $100 per hour

Rad Adults

Whether you want to learn so you can skateboard with the kids, or you just want to take it up yourself, Rad is here to help! 

Learning to skate as an adult can seem daunting. Lucky for you our coaches make it super fun! Book a private lesson or wait for our group adult sessions over the summer. 

We also held a couple of ‘Rad Ladies nights’ last summer and it was so good to see more and more ladies turning up to learn this amazing sport. 

Regular sessions for men and women will be held again over the summer.
