Ridgewood Parks and Recreation welcomes the return of Shred.Co with skateboard mini-camps this summer for ages 8 to 14.
Classes will offer warm-up exercises and stretching to prepare for riding. Students will review the basics including: safety, stance, balance, pushing, riding, turning and flat ground tricks. Next they will move on to learn to ride the ramps.
The milestone fundamental skills of the ollie and the drop-in will be taught, each requiring some persistence. More time will reinforce the skills learned and they’ll be ready to take on some of the bigger ramps the park has to offer. The final class will offer demos to family and friends showcasing what they’ve learned. Finally, games and prizes!
