I look forward to my 8th year teaching this course through Portland Community College!

It’s been a pleasure helping hundreds of new and intermediate riders gain skills and confidence in longboard skateboarding over the years!  And I really look forward to continuing my tradition of helping others on board at Mt.Tabor.  I also teach Private Lessons if you can’t make the classes and/or want individual instruction with me.
