We can't wait to SPRING into action to kick off our next youth class series! Beginning April 5, our spring series will usher in the warm season with tons of skating adventures! After a very snowy and wet winter, our instructors couldn't be more excited to head to Prospect Park and Jackie Robinson playground for lots of outdoor sessions.
This spring we are also offering fully outdoor classes that will meet at Golconda Skatepark on Mondays! These classes will be offered to both the 5-7 and 7-13 yr old age groups.
If this sounds like a good option for your child please register soon because we expect these spots to go quickly!
The Urban Shredder camp is designed for experienced beginner to advanced level skaters ages 9-15. The fully outdoor camp allows students to experience a week in the life of an NYC skater. We meet up at a designated skatepark, warm-up and then skate/walk to an assortment of skate spots in the surrounding area.
This variety of terrain will help make each student into a well rounded skater while feeding the creative spirit found through adventuring around with your skate friends!
Can my child join Urban Shredders?
We get this question a lot. We're not going to ask how high they can ollie, but we do expect Urban Shredders to be very comfortable on their skateboard. Would you feel comfortable with them skating ahead of you on a sidewalk, navigating the cracks and obstacles and stopping at the corner? If so, they probably have the skill to join.
Besides skill, they should also have a strong interest and skate independently outside of any classes or programs. In addition to interest, the program also requires stamina since we're out skating around all day. There's no need to already know tricks. We will learn together and encourage one another!
For children who are absolutely new to skateboarding, please consider our open-level camp held on site at SKATEYOGI!
To get into the Valentine's Day spirit we asked our students to write/draw love letters to skateboarding!
There are so many reasons to love skating. Just to name a few:

Summer Camp Registration opens this Sun 2/7!
We are expanding our summer programs to include a *NEW* outdoor camp in North Brooklyn! The campers will explore skateparks like Cooper Park, Blue Park (Martinez Playground) & Sgt. William Plaza. It will be a seriously awesome week for our more experienced students! More info coming soon.
So stoked to see skateboarders from across the country come together to be part of the inauguration’s virtual Parade Across America (including SKATEYOGI's very own @okbana)!
It's an incredibly important time for us all to practice unity as well as compassion for one another. Let's spread the same love that we bring to our skate sessions to everyone around us 🙌

Taking a Look Back at Our Fall Series
The best thing about being a part of SKATEYOGI is watching every student progress from week to week. This year's fall series was no different! Our skaters took full advantage of our indoor park as well as the outdoor spaces we frequent during classes.
Although each student is in a different stage of their journey, skateboarding allows us to practice & learn together. The SKATEYOGI crew are SO proud of each and every one of our skaters.

Why Skateboarding? Why at SKATEYOGI?
1. Skateboarding is a fantastic way to stay active! It challenges every muscle in your body INCLUDING your brain 🧠
2. Make new friends! Skating alone is fun but skating w/ friends is even better!
3. Take some much needed time away from your screens
4. Stay warm at SKATEYOGI's fully equipped indoor skatepark. It's the perfect practice space for every level of skater!
A Safe Haven for Skate Fun!
On days when it's snowy or freezing outside, we'll skate indoors following all of our safety protocols that meet or exceed NYS guidelines (including: masks required, HEPA air filtration and entry limited to students and teachers to allow for plenty of social distancing,). When weather permits, the 90-minute and 3-hr groups skate will outside at nearby parks and skate spots.
SKATEYOGI Crew's 2021 Skate Resolutions
"In between changing diapers, cooking meals and running SKATEYOGI, my 2021 skate goal is to set aside enough skate time each week to keep in shape, physically and mentally." - Kevin
"My resolution this year is to be more creative. Whether it’s music, art, skateboarding, or teaching, I’m going to take the lessons learned from 2020 and use them to make 2021 a great year." - Danny
"My skate resolution/goal is to continue to improve and also learn more flip tricks." - Liv
"My skate resolution is to get comfy on the mini ramp and maybe learn a kick flip!! Also to be a better teacher with a bigger bag of tricks to help all the young shredders at SKATEYOGI." - Shauna
"My skate goals for 2021 include improving my flat ground & transition skills. It would be a dream come true to land a blunt 2 fakie or a kickflip!" - Hannah
With 2020 coming to a close, we wanted to take a moment to reflect upon the past 12 months. This year has been challenging in so many ways. However, it has also shown us that skateboarding brings joy in the toughest of times.
