WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Real words from real students...
  • I went with two other friends. And each of us were level zero. Soon, Alex found 3 different levels of zero in us. But, I'm telling you ... Each one of us was able to develop what was proposed by our own rhythm, and in the end we were all skateboarding!
  • The body awareness exercises, which are completely different from everything I've ever done in ballet or pilates, give a better sense of how to balance on the longboard and how the body should remain to aid maneuvers.
  • It's been a wonderful experience. At age 37 I decided to learn. The classes are amazing and understanding them is easy. Alex is concerned about the details and this leaves me to safely face the challenges. Highly recommended!
