About These Lessons

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’.

What Will You Learn?

  • 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 on INLINE skates. If you choose to skate without a brake you will be at a huge disadvantage with only the Plough Stop available.
  • Toe Stop Drag Stop - The essential stop for beginners on ROLLER skates. Please make sure you have your toe stoppers in so we can teach you how to use them correctly.

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 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 at another time.

PLEASE NOTE: The minimum age for these classes is 14yrs. If you require skate lessons for children below this age, please enquire about private lessons.

Duration: 1.5hrs
Suitable for inline or quad/roller skaters

Avoid injury and embarrassment by learning to skate with a professional instructor.

Have you taught yourself to skate (on inline or roller skates) but you can’t stop and you don’t feel secure on slopes or in emergency situations?

Have you done our Beginner class and are ready for more progress?

What Will You Learn?

  • Consolidate the basics You can already move about on wheels but we’ll revise the basic stride and make sure your Heel Brake Stop (inliners) or Toe Stop (quads) works properly.
  • 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.
  • Acceleration and faster skating.
  • Parallel turn in both directions.

If you are self-taught and need some structure, this class will inform your practice in a way that ensures continued progress.

The Improver ability range is quite large as it includes everyone who isn't a complete beginner but hasn't yet reached intermediate level yet.

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

The minimum age for these classes is 14yrs. If you require skate lessons for children below this age, please enquire about private lessons.

Adult Stops, Slides & Slopes Group Skate Lessons

Location: Madeira Drive
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.
