    Norman is awesome. He is flexible with scheduling and always on time. He works with me and my two kids at the same time and is completely professional. We have all improved immensely after just a few lessons. If you think it’s expensive, just consider that he has to drive all over the place and pay for his own insurance. Any type of lesson is expensive these days, but Norman is the real deal and totally worth it.


    Very nice and patient tutor!

    Norman and I became instant friends after our first lesson last winter. I genuinely wish I could skate with him every day! If you've seen any of his skate videos, you know he's not your average skater. Norm has been skating for 2/3 of his life and is well-respected in the skate community. He always wows at the skatepark, especially with his mega high technical tricks. From day one, he has helped me build my confidence as a skater, which is so, so important for newbies. He has caught me and stopped me from falling many times, as well as taught me how to fall and get back up on my own. He encourages me to go for it without ever being overbearing. My niece is two years old, but as soon as she's ready for lessons, I'll be sending her to Norm!

    He’s intuitive and patient. Great with kids and a wealth of knowledge on the sport of skateboarding. My son loves him.
