Ahem, there are not just 5 reasons to rollerblade and skateboard with us
, there are dozens!
You may be surprised to hear as well as Team GBs Sky Brown (12) and Kokona Hiraki (12) from Japan leading the charge for Skateboarding at the Tokyo Olympics, Rune Glifberg (46) will be flying the Danish flag at the very same sporting event. This is just a taster of the inclusivity and popular appeal skateboarding has but it's not just skateboarding. During spring last year inline skates experienced a 300% increase in sales
as lockdown hobbies took off like never before.
Here at Zebra Skate
, we think this is great news for skateboarding and rollerblading! We love these sports not just for their fun factor but for the added benefit of being sports children can engage in both on their own and within a group. Plus there is the added benefit of honing skills associated with winter and water sports such as skiing, snowboarding and ice skating.

Why join camp with Zebra Skate?
Safety first; as well as skateboards and inline skates every Skate Camp attendee has access to a full set of safety gear: wrist, knee and elbow pads as well as helmet.
For a full day of camp that means parents are avoiding carrying around a bulky bag of 10 (TEN) separate pieces of equipment. All rental equipment is provided free of charge if selected at registration.
Once safety kit is in place the fun begins and so does the falling; planned and otherwise. The first thing beginners learn is how to fall correctly and safely. The main aim to remove some of the fear of falling; and of course endear yourself to fellow Skate Campers. Nothing breaks the ice faster than falling over and making a spectacle of yourself in front of your peers.
As your child’s skill level improves so does their resilience and eagerness to tackle more advanced skating techniques. Slalom, skate tours, jumps and ramps are just some of the more challenging activities offered to faster progressing kids. Zebra skate have a range of medals and prizes to help inspire children and they are not just given out for excelling. Rewards are offered for persistence, tenacity and giving it your all as well.
What sets Zebra Skate apart from the rest?
Inspirational coaches and how they incorporate not just games but hybrid sports into their lessons to keep the kids coming back for more. Skate-tag, traffic lights and Grandma’s footsteps are all firm camp favourites but the inclusion of games such as inline-hockey and roller-football allows camp to offer something unique to kids looking to improve their skills and have a tonne of fun in the process.
Who is Zebra Skate?
Team Zebra have a wide range of teaching and performing abilities. They range from instructors qualified with the UK Inline Skating Association, winners of skateboard competitions and the current UK Freestyle Slalom champion, fourteen year-old Alice Lean
, who uses her skills to promote skating to a whole new generation. In addition our junior instructor programme takes eager 10, 11 and 12 year olds and trains them to teach younger kids. Teaching is a life skill that goes well beyond the sphere of Skate Camp; why not develop your coaching craft whilst having bags of fun in the process?
