What a beautiful day it was today! We had a day camp for those who were off from school for Lunar New Year. Since the ground was a bit wet, we went to the nearby basketball court (the ground dries fast!) for an outdoor sesh this afternoon. In 2 weeks, we have day camps for mid-winter recess from 2/18-22. You can just register for 1 day or multiple days. (Getting a 5-day pack is a great idea, if you are planning on doing 5 days of SKATEYOGI camps in 90 days.)
It's the time of the year to start planning for the summer again! We are excited to announce that we have released our summer camp catalog! (Email us if you would like us to send one to you with your name and address!) Our summer camp is a great way for your child to stay active, have lots of fun and make new friends!
What's new this year:
SKATEYOGI will be attending several camp fairs in February. Come see us!
MLK Day is only 1 week away!
We welcome all levels from absolute beginners to experienced shredders, offering complimentary gear rental to all the registered campers. (If you have your own, please feel free to bring it!) Our 4:1 student to teacher ratio provides individualized skateboarding learning experiences to everyone. Read more about our day camp program here. Also, we offer a 5-day pack if you are planning on coming to SKATEYOGI's day camps at least 5 times in the next 3 months. Please take advantage of the offer!
Skating is more fun with your homies!
Skating is more fun with your homies!In our weekend classes and series, we introduce our students to basics techniques and tricks in skateboarding. These are a nice foundation to introduce them to skating. For students looking for a little more depth, our afterschool skate program is a great place to spend several hours a week learning and skating with friends and instructors. The longer format allows for a more natural session and is pretty close to what older skaters do – meeting up at the spot, skating, hanging out, maybe build a cool ramp setup to change things up. And best of all it's their own space to skate and create with only good vibes.
Afterschool registration is now open for the Spring semester that starts up the first week of February and goes until early June (We have Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays available). Drop off is at SKATEYOGI between 3:15-3:45pm and pick up is between 5:30-6pm. Pickup is available at select schools. If you can gather 4 children we may be able to arrange a school pickup. Send us an email if you'd like to sign up for a trial day in January to have your child try it out.
Hope to skate with you soon!
SKATEYOGI Founder Kevin along with Co-Founder Yasuyo shared his insight on how we teach kids about overcoming their fear, why it's awesome to teach adults skateboarding and what's best part about having a job where he gets to do what he loves. Read the article here!

San Diego was a blast!Just came back on a red-eye flight this morning! I had a quick trip to San Diego for a 3-day conference this week where among many great speakers, I got to hear Michelle Obama talk about health and fitness for children. Lots of inspiration about how keeping us active contributes to so many dimensions of wellness. I'll write more about it once I rest up!!
Our weekly classes are happening as usual this weekend but please note that we'll be closed for a birthday party from 3-5pm on Sat 9/22. Interested in hosting a skate birthday party with us? Lean more here!
Kids (Ages 6-12)
Just coming back from vacation and trying to figure out what you want your kids to do for the rest of the summer? How about trying out our skate camp? We welcome all levels and offer complimentary skate gear rental, so you can try out skateboarding for a week and see how you like it! Watch our summer camp video and learn more about what makes our camp special.
SKATEYOGI's summer camp has begun and it's been a lot of fun making new friends and skating!
Some people think that skateboarding is for boys, but actually here at SKATEYOGI 40-50% of our students are girls! (Come to our adult class and you'll see more female students than male ones.) From female adult students, we often hear them say: "Skateboarding was something boys did when I was a teenager, but now they think "F-it, I'm learning how to do this before I die."
Whatever your motivations are, we welcome everyone here!
