Summer Skateboard Camps: What to look for
The best summer skateboard camps will have the type of instruction level and facilities that your child needs. If a child is an absolute beginner, the first "up" on a skatboard will be an exhiliarting and frightening experience. Look for progressive instruction programs. When a child congquers the skill to get on and off the board without falling, the instructor will progress the child to grind and then perform tricks. Your child may come home from cap with a new language. Beginner tricks learned may be: ollie, kickturns, 50/50 grinds, rock n rolls, board slides, truck stands, and manuals. If you know the tricks your child wants to learn, then you can ask if that instruction is available at the camp before signing up.
Advanced Skateboard Skills: Learning Now
The mid-level skill skateboarder will know with great precision which tricks they want to learn next. They will know very well the equipment that will be needed at camp in order for them to advanced to the next level. At a minimum, the summer skateboard camp will need the following categories of hard on the ground equipment: Launch ramps (kickers), box jumps, wave ramps, quarter pipes, spines, half pipes, vert ramps, bowls, pyramids and rails. The "bowls" are one of the most photogenic and iconic mainstays of the skateboard world. Shaped as a cereal bowl, bowls resemble in-ground swimming pools. Skaters start at the upper edge of the bowl, then drop into it to generate speed and catch air. The feel of being inside a bowl for the skater is much different than the experience of a quarter-pipe. The leg muscles have to work the body differently; instructors at camp will guide the camper toward this advanced skill mastery.
