Due to the immense popularity of the city's skate park, the Recreation Division will offer a Skateboard I class to help beginner skaters learn the ropes.

The classes are offered in two age groups (7-12 and 13-17) and hosted on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. from April 3-24 and May 5-22.

Skateboard I teaches a host of fun and exciting skate tips and tricks, including pushing, riding, tack turns, switch turns, safe approaches to ramps and proper foot placement (regular or goofy).

The class also includes an introduction to ollies, drop-ins and a supervised huck jam similar to Tony Hawk's Boom Boom HuckJam.

"The city's Skate Park is very popular and can get very crowded," said Councilmember Frank Ferry. "The city's new Skateboard I class offers the chance for beginning skaters to hone their skills at the skate park in a pressure-free environment."

The class is $100 ($125 non-residents) for five to eight sessions.

In order to participate, class attendees are required to bring along a skateboard and the skate park's required safety equipment: helmet, elbow and knee pads.

The Skate Park is located at 20840 Centre Pointe Parkway, Santa Clarita 91350.

For more information on the class or to learn how to register, contact the city's Recreation Division at (661) 250-3700 or visit
