Earlier this week, I had another virtual lesson with a student in Texas. I must say the experience has been awesome! When the lessons first started out, I thought the technology would be challenging. But even just a few minutes into our first lesson, the screens faded away and it felt like I was right there giving tips on kickflips and showing how to scoop your back foot on a no-comply.
I wanted to share the love so I'm excited to announce you can now book virtual skate lessons with either Danny or Emilio! They both have access to a skate space and would love to skate and learn with you. In order to help get them back to doing what they love most, we are offering a special rate for 4 weekly lessons. These are one-on-one 45-minute custom lessons with homework challenges. All you need is skate gear and a safe spot to skate like a driveway, garage or patio. Take your skating to the next level!
Stoked we passed 100 subscribers on our YouTube channel this week! It's been a blast making these videos and even more awesome to see people enjoying them!!
Looking forward to connecting with all of you!

Hi everyone! This is Kevin from SKATEYOGI. While I was taking care of a few things at our shop, I figured I would make a quick video for some skateboard hacks you can do at home while social distancing!
I actually had my first ever virtual skateboarding lesson with a student from Houston, TX. That worked really well – we looked at his kick flips; he learned frontside no complies; we played the game of SKATE etc. That was really cool, and we are thinking of doing more virtual lessons!
If you already have a normal skateboard...let's turn it into an indoor skateboard!
First, I'm going to show you how to make your normal skateboard a little easier to skate inside.
Step 1: Take a skate tool (or socket wrench)
Step 2: Tighten the axle nut (Turn it to the right clockwise) – Don't overdo it to avoid damaging your bearings.
Step 3: Tighten until your wheel doesn't spin that well.
Step 4: Repeat x 3
Now, you have a board that's more stable. If you are going to be "skating" in a smack area like a room with a carpet, even a little patch of concrete you might have in a basement or anywhere you can find.
1. Practice Your Stance
1. Step up and down (watch the video to learn the basics of how to step on/off the board here!)
2. With your front foot on the board, practice pushing by moving your back foot. Develop your balance.
3. Practice going up and down
4. Give yourself a little challenge - Balance without touching anything!
2. Flip the board
3. Jump onto the board
