Are you a complete beginner?

Skated years ago and starting again?

Self-taught but can't stop properly?

Have you discovered skating is harder than it looks?

You want to skate but can't afford to get injured from falling?

Using the Skatefresh method, you'll avoid any embarrassment, learn to skate, stop and turn and know EXACTLY how to find --your balance in each moment.

What Will You Learn?

  • On-grass basics;
    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 skating.
  • Plough Stop – Your first simple stop.
  • Heel Brake Stop – INLINE skates.
  • Toe Stop Drag Stop – ROLLER skates.

If you are very anxious about skating or very fearful of falling, we recommend a private lesson for your first time on skates. This means you can go at your own pace.

After completing our Beginner group lesson, choose to 'graduate' to our Improver group class or repeat another beginner group depending on how well you mastered the beginner syllabus.

  • Improve your stride technique so you gain fitness from your skates.
  • Stopping techniques (that actually work!)
  • One legged gliding techniques to improve your agility and balance.

We recommend taking this class several times and continue to improve your skills until you are ready to progress to Intermediate classes.

Adult Stops, Slides & Slopes Group Skate Lessons

Location: Madeira Drive
(eastern end of Madeira Drive) https://what3words.com/types.result.yoga
Duration: 1.5hrs
Suitable for inline or quad/roller skaters

These special workshops will help to prepare you for the summer street skating season in Brighton. Unless you can control your speed and stop completely on down hill slopes, you should not be participating on mass group skates.
This workshop is suitable for inline and quad skaters and will use both flat areas and a downhill slope to train your methods. The following straight line stops will be taught and polished and then used on the slope.

  • T-Stop + Toe Stop Drag (quaddies)
  • Plough Stop + Stepping Plough Stop
  • Powerslide (inlines) + Back Toe Stop (quaddies)

When taking these stops to the slope, you’ll discover whether they are fluent enough to stop you in a controlled and structured environment and give you an accurate assessment of your safety on slopes.
