Beginner Inline Skating Lessons for adults

After the Covid-19 lock down Skatefresh has now partially reopened with small group classes (maximum 7 skaters) for Beginner and Improver levels. This allows us to follow social distancing guidelines safely. 

Please see class dates below.

About these lessons

Never skated before and scared of falling?

Skated years ago and want to start again?

Can skate but can’t stop?

Avoid injury and embarrassment by learning with a professional instructor.

Learn to skate safely without falling.

Learn to skate forwards, stop and turn in your first lesson.

Learning to skate should not be ‘trial and error’.


  • On-grass basics;
    Protective gear
    How to fall correctly
    Skating positions (feet and body)
    How to prevent falling
  • How to skate absolutely right so that falling is rare.
  • Basic Movement – Slow, gentle, controlled and conscious skating.
  • Safety position while rolling
  • Plough Stop – Your first simple stop.
  • Heel Brake Stop – The essential stop for beginners and introduction to slopes.

If you are very anxious about skating or very fearful of falling, we recommend a private lesson for your first time on skates.
After completing our Beginner lesson most people with some practice continue to our Improver class, while others may feel that they need more revision with the basic skills and opt to repeat the Beginner class.

What people say about our beginner skating lessons

“Many thanks for the class on Saturday –  it was just great. So lovely to be learning something again and she’s such  a brilliant teacher – I had a wonderful afternoon and have been boring friends and family about it ever since! I now have the confidence to head out to the park with my 7 yr old, knowing it will be fun and not catastrophic!”
