To become an Olympian, you need to train like an Olympian, and the first step in that journey is to find a coach and team that can take you there!


Whether you are looking to compete in Park, Street or both, Golden State Skateboarding has a structured program that will give you the best chance of getting there and being competitive when you do.

Our mentoring program offers a personalized experience of spending time with a good role model that can offer more than just teaching your child/adult how to skate. Every parent knows that having a good example in a child’s life, and someone for them to look up to, is essential for longterm development. We have found that having a mentor creates a safe place for individuals to discuss certain happenings, both positive and negative, and allows us to facilitate growth and comfort outside of the parents supervision.


We are big on teaching manners, respect for others, and etiquette in every aspect of life!

How it Works
    •    We pick up and drop off at your home (North County Area)
    •    2.5 hour time slot including drive time
    •    All inclusive: water and snacks included
    •    We concentrate on personal development as well as fine tuning skate skills along with consistent progression

$675 for 4 sessions
