Why Skateboarding Is Best For Your Kids?

Skateboarding is a fun and rewarding activity for kids of all ages. It’s a great way to get exercise, improve balance and coordination, and learn new skills. Skateboarding can also help kids develop important life skills such as perseverance, resilience, and creativity.

Here are some of the reasons why skateboarding is best for your kids:

  • It’s a great way to get exercise. Skateboarding is a full-body workout that engages all of the major muscle groups. It’s also a great way to improve cardiovascular fitness.
  • It improves balance and coordination. Skateboarding requires kids to balance themselves on a moving board while also navigating obstacles and performing tricks. This helps to improve their overall balance and coordination.
  • It teaches new skills. Skateboarding is a challenging sport that requires kids to learn new skills in order to progress. This helps them to develop problem-solving skills and perseverance.
  • It builds confidence. As kids learn new tricks and master new challenges, their confidence grows. Skateboarding can help kids to believe in themselves and their abilities.
  • It fosters creativity. Skateboarding is a creative sport that allows kids to express themselves in their own unique way. They can come up with new tricks and lines, and they can also customize their boards to reflect their personality.
  • It’s a social sport. Skateboarding is a great way for kids to meet new friends and socialize. Skate parks are often welcoming and inclusive places where kids of all skill levels can come together to have fun and learn from each other.

In addition to the physical and mental benefits of skateboarding, it is also a relatively inexpensive sport to get started in. All you need is a skateboard and some safety gear, such as a helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads.

If you are looking for a fun and healthy activity for your kids, skateboarding is a great option. It’s a sport that they can enjoy for a lifetime.

Here are some tips for getting your kids started in skateboarding:

  • Take them to a local skate park or skate shop and let them try out different boards.
  • Buy them a helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads before they start skating.
  • Teach them the basics of skateboarding, such as how to push off, balance, and turn.
  • Encourage them to start small and gradually work their way up to more difficult tricks.
  • Be patient and supportive. Learning to skateboard takes time and practice.

Most importantly, have fun! Skateboarding is a great way to bond with your kids and create lasting memories.

Skate the Foundry has been amazing for my kiddo and their love of skateboarding! Brett and the team at Skate The Foundry have helped my child develop such a love of skateboarding and has built so much confidence in it over the past 6 months of lessons with Lilah! We were lucky enough to host their birthday party there this past weekend and it was SO MUCH FUN. The kiddos were all raving, and Brett, Lilah and Possum created the best vibes. Such a fun skate lesson and games and fun for the kids. Couldn't recommend this spot more highly.

Brett was great with my son. He had an awesome time and gained a ton of confidence. Couldn't be happier with this place. The complete boards were "really cool".

My son (6) took at private lesson here last week and am so happy with our experience. The owner is so kind, helpful, and professional and his team is so dedicated to their craft and teaching others the love of skateboarding. They took all the intimidation out of it, and taught my son so many useful tips in such a short period of time. This is truly a Philly gem and would definitely recommend to beginners, especially kids who just need a quality mentor!

Amazing classes. Amazing staff. Everyone is so welcoming and knowledgeable. After attending one class, I felt empowered to skate every day. Lilah was a great instructor and I look forward to being a part of this wonderful skate community! I am a newer skater and I met some really good friends who gave great tips. Kevin is a manager at the store, and he was really kind and supportive. Honestly love this place. Open Skate is pretty open on weekdays and everyone is so supportive.

Amazing spot to learn to skate for all levels! I’ve been skating since I was a kid, but never had the guts to Ollie or ride half pipes. Within my first 10 mins of a private lesson with Brett, I landed an Ollie that was 27 years in the making! One of the best feelings ever. Great for kids, but also really great for adults who want to learn or develop their abilities. Will definitely be back soon
