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 on 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 though 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.

PLEASE NOTE:

YOU WILL NEED TO BRING YOUR OWN SKATES, WRIST GUARDS AND KNEE PADS AS THESE ARE NOT SUPPLIED BY SKATEFRESH
