Get private one on one skate lessons from one of the Braille Crew at our Private indoor Skate Park in San Leandro! 

Currently, we have Nelson Flores as the instructor. He has been teaching people of all ages, shapes and sizes how to skate and land tricks for years. 

Available times are Monday – Friday 9am -5pm and Sunday 10am-5pm. You can do an hour at a time or book a longer lesson.

For example, if you purchase a 1 hour lesson, you can choose to go Tuesday from 2pm-3pm.

If you purchase a larger block of time, you can use those hours over a series of days, weeks, months etc. until you run out. 

We do not currently schedule Saturday lessons.

Email upon purchase to schedule your lesson (times in addition to those listed above can be worked out on an individual basis).  Lessons will NOT be scheduled until the time is purchased due to past no shows resulted in wasted instructor time.

Customer Reviews:

Thank you so much for a fantastic lesson. Much kudos to Carlos for his patient and expert teaching. Roy learned an incredible amount in his one hour lesson and will remember his day at Braille forever!!”

“My 13 year old has been taking regular lessons at Braille over the last several months. Always comes away feeling more confident in his skills and often learns a new trick. Instructors have great flexibility to teach what the student wants to learn. Instructors are always very enthusiastic, encouraging and supportive as well as being open to feedback.”

My experience with Braille’s private lessons was beyond awesome! The Braille guys know how to make learning skateboarding fun. I took lessons with both Mario (for the mini ramp) and Carlos (for street/park). Both guys are very approachable, friendly, down to earth, and patient when teaching. Whatever tricks you want to learn, they will break down the basic mechanics of how to execute each trick perfectly. You will learn things like foot position, body posture, balance, arm positions, and timing of movements. Once you get the mechanics down, they let you get out there and try the tricks you want to learn for the remaining time you have. They’ll guide you, observe carefully, cheer you on, and provide true one-on-one support. Before I took lessons, I was only able to cruise, drop-in, ollie, and carve in a bowl. After 15 one-hour lessons with Mario and Carlos, I was able to Rock to Fakie, Axle Stall, Tail Stall, Half Cab Rock, Rock and Roll, Shove It, FS Kickturn, FS 50-50, FS 180 off a ledge, Nose Stall, and Boardslide. I never thought I was able to progress and learn so much, big thanks to Mario, Carlos, and Braille in general!

If any of you want to learn skateboarding with solid instruction in a friendly and open-arm environment, Braille Skateboarding is where it’s at! Can’t wait to progress more!”

    Carlos has cemented our status as superhero parents for the foreseeable future! In less than an hour he had our kid, (who couldn’t even push and cruise properly) dropping in on the ramps, and cruising around all non-chalant like. Carlos was patient and thorough, and could not have been any better! We will definitely book another lesson next time we visit from Japan!

  2. Dalton Bright

    Hey Aron I’m a beginner skater and I don’t know what size skateboard I should get I wear a six and a half in shoes and I prefer lighter boards. What size should I get.

    • Braille Shop

      Hey Dalton, You would most likely want to get anywhere from a 7.5-8

  3. Karen Kalley

    Just a quick question,
    My son would love to learn to skateboard and watches your online videos all of the time. I would love to give him an hour or two with you lot but he doesn’t own a skateboard. Is that a problem?

    • Braille Shop

      Hey Karen,

      No problem, we have skateboards here that he can use for the time being.

  4. Kristian Ogle

    Hey I don’t know what size board I should get but I wear a size 8 shoe

    • Braille Shop

      Anywhere from a 7.75 to and 8.25 is a good spot to start.

  5. Brendon Mendoza

    So I’m 13 and I’m just now starting to skateboard. I don’t really know what kind of shoes would be best and I think my skateboard is way to old to use. It was my dads 10 years ago and it has chips and the grip is coming off on the sides.

    • Braille Shop

      Glad to hear you are getting into it!
      Any shoes that are flat on the bottom and cover your toes are good!
      Any board works for getting the feeling or standing and riding. Eventually you may want to upgrade to something you are comfortable standing on though.

    • Braille Shop

      anywhere from 8-8.5 is good.
