With more than 30 years of skateboarding experience including more than 15 years as a professional skateboarder and over 10 years of judging experience, Neal Mims has the knowledge and long term experience to coach and mentor any skater at any level.


Considering his extensive background and passion of skateboarding and mentoring, Neal got the idea to share this experience by creating Neal Mims Skate Academy, where he was able to teach lessons in skateboarding and beyond, and even pioneered the first ever skateboarding travel experience. After over a decade of sharing his strategies and supporting skateboarders of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds, Neal has decided to cater to more advanced skaters striving for opportunities within the skateboarding industry, and top tier competitive skaters by starting Golden State Skateboarding.

​With years of knowledge of how the skateboarding industry works, Neal can help cultivate career paths through skateboarding on an individual basis.
