Darwin Skate School runs classes and lessons for all levels of skater and for all ages and all skill levels. Class costs and times vary, and skates and protective gear are available for hire if you don't have your own. Remember to book early as classes are in high demand and often book out.

Super-beginner / Learn to Skate

This class is for people (of all ages) who have never skated and/or have minimal experience....

coastal cruising

Coastal cruising is a group lesson that takes place outdoors, usually on the Nightcliff foreshore. Skaters learn the basics of outdoor skating in a safe and supportive environment.

skate gym

Skate gym is a group lesson hosted indoors in a controlled environment and is suitable for most levels of skaters....

skate park for girls

Skate parks are no longer a 'boy zone', Darwin Skate School encourages girl skaters (and skaters who identify as female) to hit the skate park whenever they want, but we understand it can sometimes be intimidating. Come and learn with us in a supportive environment on either a skateboard or skates.

private lessons

Private lessons are available for all ages, please contact us directly to discuss options.
