 Rollerblading & Rollerskating Lessons in Brisbane

When?

Lessons are available by SMS appointment after 5pm daily Monday-Wednesday and Saturdays from 8:30am+. Lesson slots book out very quickly. Prepayment secures bookings. We prefer EFT payment to avoid PayPal fees. Send a booking request SMS (click here for message format mentioning ROLLERBLADING BRISBANE or ROLLERSKATING BRISBANE) early to avoid disappointment.

Where?

See the venues page for our rollerblading and rollerskating lessons locations in Brisbane. We prefer for you to take your first 1hr or 1.5 hr lesson at Hamilton (near Portside) due to the availability of an undercover area in case of rain.

What Will I Learn?

We teach inline skating according to the Instructor Certification Program International (ICP) syllabus covering stopping, moving, and turning. Our Instagram account will give you a good idea of what we can teach you. We also teach aggressive skating (ramp, street, park) and slalom / freestyle rollerblading so please advise us at the time of your SMS booking. Lessons are available on rollerskates (quads), inline skates (rollerblades) and freeline skates (drift, freeskates) and we'll often request you send a photo of your skates via SMS. Learn recreational, speed skating, roller derby, slalom and skate park skating. For the less ramp or street inclined, and more recreational / fitness focused make your goal becoming proficient enough to skate on social skates (cityskates). N.B. the hills (learn how to stop - WELL) and always wear a helmet! Ask your instructor at the time of your lesson for more details about social cityskates, slalom lessons, Brisbane's night skating scene, and other events. Stopping lessons are highly recommended and we'll make our lessons fun regardless of your level.  We endorse a helmet culture.

Group versus Private Lessons

We recommend that if you're new to rollerblading that you get a lesson pack of private lessons. This makes learning easier and safer. As such, most of our lessons are taught to individuals (1 or 2) or very small groups (3 or 4 people) that you organise. So you will get at an excellent student-to-instructor ratio. To book lessons you must organise prompt payment to secure the booking time. Our cancellation policy is on our pricing page.

We also sometimes run small kids group birthday parties for small groups (limit up to 8 skaters - unless you have all of your own gear) and we utilise mostly extendable inline skates used for this purpose. Here is a photo from our Rollerblading Sydney operation that has been in continuous operation since 1999.

Rollerskate or rollerblading equipment

Depending on whether you want a rollerskating or rollerblading lesson we may have your EURO shoe size skate. We can usually provide you with excellent quality inline skates and protective pads for your lesson but this can impact your lesson duration as is indicated on the pricing page. If you do bring your own rollerskates or inline skates please text message a photo of the skates. Inline skates should have a working heel brake unless you are in a slalom or ramp - aggressive inline skating lesson. We require that you wear protective equipment whilst skating (preferably not flimsy 'cheapskate' gear). No helmet - no lesson - not negotiable - we will supply one if you don't own one. Advise your instructor at the time of sending the booking request whether you'll need us to bring wrist, knee, elbow pads, plus helmet (S | M | L | XL). Participants agree to wear knee pads, wrist guards and helmets at all times during the lesson regardless of ability levels. Participants agree to sign a waiver accepting responsibility for their involvement in rollerblading lessons.

If you are already a competent rollerblader able to use the heel brake, consider our advanced fitness | skate-to-ski | freestyle slalom classes. We have limited inline skate hire for Friday Night Social Skates.
