Brighton Inline Skating and Quad/Roller Skate Lessons

Skatefresh offers group skating classes in Brighton for ages 14yrs and up for Beginner, Improver and Intermediate level skaters. For those who prefer one to one tuition, we are also able to offer private skate lessons for all skating abilities, suitable for ages 6yrs and up.

Beginner Group Skate Lessons

For: Inline (rollerblades) or quad/roller skaters (ages 14yrs & up)

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.

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.

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.

  • Plough Stop – Your first simple stop.
  • Heel Brake Stop – INLINE skates.
  • Toe Stop Drag Stop – ROLLER skates.

Stops & Slides Skate Lessons in Brighton

The most important of ALL skills on inline & roller skates is how to stop and every skater should have several, high functioning stopping methods in their repertoire (to avoid accidents and injuries). This workshop looks at the easier stops, while “Stops, Slides & Slopes Level 2” looks at the more challenging methods.

The majority of skaters do not realise that by neglecting their stopping methods they not only increase their risks of falls and injuries but also reduce their learning of other skills such as speed skating, crossovers and street skating.

What you'll learn;

  • Plough Stop (2 versions)
  • T-Stop (so that it actually stops you)
  • Turn Stops (various options)

This 2 hr workshop is NOT suitable for beginners, who should focus 100% on mastering the Heel Brake Stop or Toe Stop Drag before any other methods.

Stride/Fitness Optimiser Group Skate Lessons

Every skater spends MOST of their time on skates JUST SKATING! However, if your skating stride lacks fundamental technique, you will not get the fitness benefits that skating offers and you may even create bad habits over time that can lead to ‘slow onset injuries’ particularly if you skate distances (e.g. ankle, knee, hip pains from persistent pronation on an inside edge). What you’ll learn;

What you’ll learn;
  • An efficient push.
  • A correct, comfortable glide, in terms of edges, balance and cadence.
  • A regroup that maximises your stride (and not destroy all the hard work you just put in).
  • The Stride Training Sequence. The drill to keep you on track for months/years to come.

“This class transformed my skating. I never knew how many things I was doing wrong. Feels great to be on the right path now and I understand what a workout skating should be if you’re doing it right.” – Analise (46) Belgium

This workshop does not cover the Double Push (although most skaters fail with the double push because their normal fitness stride lacks the correct foundations). This class is an essential prerequisite for the Double Push workshop.

PLEASE NOTE: This group lesson is appropriate for every level of skater except beginners.

Brighton Street Skating Skills Lessons

Brighton isn’t an easy city to skate around (not great surfaces and lots of slopes), so you’ll need some specific street skills to allow you to join the group skates or just get around on your own – even if that’s just along the seafront.

In this class you’ll learn;

  • How to accelerate efficiently (so you have the speed to safely roll over surface obstacles).
  • How to skate over rough surfaces.
  • How to handle surface obstacles, bumps, metal covers & cracks.
  • How to use your best stopping methods in emergency situations.
  • How to skate up and down kerbs safely (so you can easily swap from road to pavement and vice versa).

This class is suitable for inline & roller skaters.

PLEASE NOTE: In order to attend this class:

1. Roller skaters MUST wear stoppers, a heel brake is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for those using inline skates.
2. You need to have at least 1 functional stopping method and be able to do a rolling scissor position for several metres.
3. You ideally should not embark on street skating until you’ve also completed our “Stops & Slides” and “Stride/Fitness Optimizer” classes. Safe street skating needs you to be able to stop when you need to as well as push, glide & control your edges.

Location:

Meet at the Zipwire, east of the Palace Pier.
