Are pads and a helmet required?

Do I need to buy all the equipment for the skate lessons?

As a parent, you know children pick up and drop activities all the time. We offer a (1) time single private paid trial skate lesson to see if skateboarding is something your child wants to do. Click here to schedule your lesson. No skateboard, no helmet, no pads, no problem. We can provide equipment for your trial only, free of charge. Make sure to email us that you need equipment at least 72 hours ahead of time (it can change based on location). If they enjoyed the lesson, get a package for her/him to safely learn the basics.

Do I need to buy all the equipment for the skate lessons?

Having personal skateboard equipment is highly suggested, as the student will be more comfortable using their own skateboard and pads. You can purchase equipment directly from us. Here is the link to view our store: http://www.theskateside.com/store

What type of skateboard should I buy for my child?

When it comes to buying a beginner skateboard, there isn't a brand that you should start with.

They will also give your child a bad impression in using low quality skateboards.
