Lessons will be done via Google Hangout or Zoom. If there is an easier platform for you to connect to, just let us know and we can arrange it. 

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

Additional Instructor: Robby Hargreaves 

A message from Robby: My name is Robby Hargreaves. I have been skateboarding for more than two decades. It is my biggest passion in life. With over 8 years of instructor experience, I have taught hundreds of people from all over the world how to skateboard. I am excited to be part of the Braille Family and I look forward to helping you grow your skateboarding skills.

You can book an hour at a time or book a longer lesson.

For example, if you purchase a 1 hour virtual lesson, you can choose to do it Tuesday from 2pm-3pm. If you purchase 2 hours of lessons, you can choose to do the full 2 hours or split it up.  

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. 

Email upon purchase to schedule your lesson.  Lessons will NOT be scheduled until the time is purchased due to past no shows resulted in wasted instructor time.

Customer Reviews:

“Nelson was fantastic. He’s a credit to your organization.

“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!”

  3. Chip

    I just had a question. Can you purchase an hour for more then one person?

  4. John

    How does the virtual lessons work? You show us how to do it in our home and then we go outside and try it. Or someone brings out the device with the meeting on it and we try to do the trick while you’re teaching us?

    I do not live in america,
    How may I book a lesson?

  6. Edward

    so I’m interested in purchasing but will I be able to use my carpet board instead of my actual skateboard?

    • Erika Totanes

      Hi Edward,

      We recommend giving a skateboard on wheels a try, but I don’t see why not. 🙂

    I was wondering if there was a certain set of instructors for these lessons? Who are the teachers?

    • Devin Weber

      Currently the instructor is Robby Hargreaves. There should be a bio for him on the lesson page you can check out. He is awesome!
