Skateboard Lessons For Beginners In Paine's Park

Our skateboard and roller skating programs are open to skaters of all levels, from complete beginners to experienced riders. Whether you're looking to learn the basics of balance and coordination, or you're ready to take on more advanced tricks, we have a program for you. Our beginner programs will teach you the basics of skateboarding, such as how to balance, push, turn, and stop. You'll also learn about safety and etiquette, so you can skate safely and confidently.
Once you've mastered the basics, you can move on to our more advanced programs. In these programs, you'll learn how to do ollies, kickflips, grinds, and other tricks. You'll also learn how to skate different types of terrain, such as bowls and ramps.
We also offer private lessons for skaters of all levels. Private lessons are a great way to get one-on-one attention from a qualified instructor. You can use private lessons to focus on specific areas of your skateboarding or roller skating, such as your footwork or your balance.
If you're interested in learning to skateboard, book for one of our programs today!

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
