Building on the legacy of the Kman skate school at The Entertainment Quarter, Skate Now began in 2012 with just a handful of private lessons at Bondi Beach skatepark. Things grew quickly however, and before long we were teaching 30+ kids a day at various school and OOSH centres throughout the East, Inner West and further afield.
Our program, which is based on graded progression, safety, inclusion and most importantly fun, evolved at a rapid pace during this time, as we further developed and honed our teaching methods and techniques.
As safety has always been a top priority, we sourced premium grade protective equipment and skateboards to provide for free to students at our lessons. We also designed our own portable beginner to intermediate level skate obstacles, so students could learn to ride ramps, rails, manual pads and ledges in an easily accessible and safe way.
We’ve now grown to be Sydney’s most experienced and best skateboarding service provider. Last year we were selected by City of Sydney to run a series of learn-to-skate programs at their newly opened facility at Sydney Park.
Today, we continue to grow and help thousands of students build skills and gain confidence every year.
