Due to the COVID-19, we ask everyone to wear safety gear. Because of the ground at Paine’s Park, a small fall can scratch their skin, and wearing safety gear can really prevent these minor cuts.

Good fit for: skaters who skate at intermediate/advanced levels and are interested in “street skating.” Skaters who take this course must be comfortable skateboarding with lots of speed, and love exploring the city while skateboarding. This course will meet up at Lombard Circle Parking Lot (S Christopher Columbus Blvd Philadelphia, PA 19106) and the skaters within the class will travel by board on the Delaware River Trail to explore “skate spots” around Spruce Street Harbor Park, Penns Landing, Race Street Pier and Cherry Street Pier (without crossing any streets). While exploring, skaters will learn flat ground tricks, such as kick-flips, varial flips, 360 flips as they cruise around to different skate spots.  

Helpful Hints:
Street Skateboarding and Skate Spots – Street Skating is a discipline which focuses on flatground tricks, grinds, slides and aerials within urban environments and public spaces. Street Skaters meet, skate and hang out, in and around urban areas referred to as “Skate Spots” or “Spots.”
