Amazing session. The instructor Hugo was all patience and encouragement, and it was plain to see my daughter's enthusiasm and confidence building along with her skills. Highly recommended if your child is showing any interest at all in skateboarding - one hour that will make them so much safer and more confident right from the start.

Sahar Hatami Feb 2024

I enjoyed it, we tried many techniques, the performance was great although it was only one hour.

Amity St Clair Jan 2024

Dylan was a friendly and patient teacher skateboarding teacher, which was great for my daughter who was a beginner. Can recommend.

Rob Pyne Jan 2024

The lesson went well for my daughter who had not skated before. The way dylan used simple games to engage the kids worked well. They provided all the gear. Good experience.

Corina Francis Crowe Jan 2024

Dylan was a fantastic teacher. Fun, patient, skilled. My 7 year old daughter felt very cool and walked away with some new skills she's very proud of.

Stuart Holywell Nov 2023

Lots of fun & teacher had lots of patience. Thank you I would recommend to adults

Ros Berry Sep 2023

Everything was really great. My grand daughter loved her lesson with Dylan. She was quite nervous leading up to it but left with confidence to practise everything he taught her and very keen to have another lesson. It couldn’t have been better. Thank you.

Nicole Sep 2023

I'd organised a private class with some work friends who had also never skated before. We had a great time learning with Dylan, who was a really helpful instructor. I've since been inspired to get a loaner skateboard to practice and I suspect we've started to annoy people at work with our eagerness to start a skate gang.

Yuyou Gu Sep 2023

My son likes the class and he learns a lot! If we have time, we will come back.

Timothy David Dixon Sep 2023

This was an absolutely great introduction to skateboarding - Dillon was fantastic taking me through each step for my first time trying skateboarding. Stips and tips were both practical and fun. I left with a clear idea of how to proceed in a new hobby for me.

The lesson was nice. The equipment was good and kids like it. Each participant get guidance based on the skill level.

Alex Heffernan Aug 2023

Dylan and Rachel were absolutely brilliant and so knowledgeable, helpful and kind. My daughter had a roller skating lesson with Rachel, who was amazing. By the end of one lesson, my daughter was able to confidently skate on her own.
They gave us really good advice about the right equipment and techniques. Would highly recommend Henrietta Skate and will be booking in again next school holidays!

The coach is patient, kind and cheerful. My boys learnt the basic skills and some tricks in their 1st lesson.

Mitchell Dunn Jul 2023

Dylan was wonderful and my 7 yo daughter really appreciated his calm approach and supportive teaching style. She skated away from the lesson so much more confident.
We will definitely return for more lesssons. I can't recommend them enough.

Edward Coventry Jul 2023

I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor for my step son. Dylan straight away built trust. Thank you. The equipment was excellent too. Thank you very much

Vanessa Harvey Jun 2023

Awesome job thanks Dylan! My son took to the instruction so easily and is looking forward to more of the same.

Zane McIntyre May 2023

Had a lot of fun and covered the basics with the teacher. Our teach was friendly, knowledgeable and kept a close eye on us as we learned to skate.

Whilst my body was feeling sore by the end I didn't want the lesson to end.

Liz Trotter May 2023

Dylan was fantastic, he led the group wonderfully. Very inclusive and supportive, sound safety advice and well prepared kids games.
Highly recommend anyone looking for lessons or party ideas to book with Dylan.

Kim Rando Apr 2023

The teacher related really well to the kids, making them feel comfortable at the same time as having lots of fun. He was also able to adapt the class so they each learned new skills appropriate to their different levels. Thank you!

Dylan Driver Apr 2023

Dylan from Henrietta Skate was clear with instructions, positive, energetic and very encouraging. We will be back again!

Lewis Isaacs Jan 2023

Great vibe. Izzy was our teacher and she was real generous with her time and advice. She helped a lot with confidence. Dylan in the shop was also awesome to chat with about the class and other skating questions. They also supplied all the gear and it’s good quality stuff. This was a great intro class and I reckon if you signed up to a couple you’d progress heaps quick

Beth Bylsma Jan 2023

This was fantastic. Dylan and his apprentice (sorry I forgot your name) were both AMAZING.
My son learnt the basics plus some new things, they were both encouraging and helpful.
We even left with a new skateboard.
We will be back, highly recommended

Dylan taught my 5yo daughter and I this morning, and despite the different skill levels he managed to teach us both.

My daughter had a great time and loved learning to skate with Dylan.

I loved picking up some tips on some things I'm currently working on and learning some new skills.

Highly recommend!

Charlie Kerrigan Jan 2023

The lesson was excellent- Dylan was patient and an amazing teacher. I would recommend a private lesson to anyone who wants to learn to skate

Jennifer Hechinger Jan 2023

Instructor was friendly, patient and funny. Great venue - right at manly beach. My 12- year-olds had a fantastic hour and learned some stuff. Thanks guys!

Olivia Johnson Dec 2022

My girls had a great time in this lesson. It was perfect for basic skills and some introductory tricks.

Had a great time, instructor was super nice and made it really enjoyable.

My friends and I want to start getting into skateboarding now

Beth Blackie Dec 2022

My 5 year old had his first skate lesson with Hugo and loved it. He was really thrilled.

Mayur Panchal Nov 2022

Dylan was amazing! He went through all the steps with how to begin riding the boards, and supported us along the way. The area chosen was a good place with minimal people traffic and we had lots of space to fall. Then also the trick learning at the end was awesome too!

Adam Reitsma Oct 2022

My son had a great time. Really relaxed and professional learning environment. He’s now super comfortable and confident on his board. Thanks!

I really enjoyed my lesson, it was so much fun! I recommend :)
Dylan is a very good and experienced teacher. Before the lesson, he asked me a few questions about my previous experience and then tried to tailor the lesson based on what I wanted to learn as well.
He's been very patient and friendly the whole time. Being a beginner, I found it the perfect environment to learn. This applies if you are interested in learning more advanced tricks as well.
All the equipment was provided and I appreciated he was very helpful in giving genuine advice about the next steps such as which protective gear is more suitable for me or which boards are best for my goal. I will definitely book other lessons.

Pradeep Cheedella Aug 2022

The instructor is really good. Kids learned and enjoyed during the class

The boys really enjoyed their skateboard lesson with Dylan and are looking forward to their next lesson.

Dylan was friendly, patient and informative.

Sarah Robinson Jun 2022

Great beginners class. Friendly, relaxed and nurturing. Will definitely give this class another go for my 8 year boy. A great way to start learning. Thanks so much Henrietta Skate.

Sarah Worpole Jun 2022

Dylan was great and made me feel very comfortable. I now feel confident that I have the skills knowledge to practice and improve. Thanks

Bas Breure Jun 2022

The lesson was great as was the instructor. A bit of challenge for him with the age difference of my kids in the private lesson but he did well and both kids enjoyed it very much. Definitely recommended.

Very good. The kids loved it and learned a lot, will do again in the future.

Henry Wilson Jun 2022

Henry really enjoyed his time and the teacher was good. Suggest either finding a place away from the seeds from the trees on the ground or getting a shop broom as the seeds made it a bit hard to get the technique at low speeds

Matthew Carter Apr 2022

Instructor was great, we focused on my six year old daughter picking up basic skills. She definitely advanced in the lesson we had, Looking forward to coming back for another lesson soon.

Rebecca Vaccarella Apr 2022

Dylan was an awesome teacher! We had a great session. He was a punk, we did ballet. What more can we say? He was a sk8r boi.

Abey Malouf Apr 2022

Hugo was great with my daughter- very patient and encouraging. They had a 1-on-1 session which she really enjoyed. She was able to go through a full range of moves and techniques and he made sure she mastered each step before moving on to the next one. She liked it so much that she asked for more private lessons with Hugo!

Jonah Whitehorn Feb 2022

Hugo was great and after his first lesson my son had already learnt a couple of tricks

Pavlo Kravchenko Feb 2022

Thanks a lot for the great skate class experience! Dylan is the best and exceptionally professional coach! We surely recommend the skating school and Dylan in particular.

Bianca Dufton-Roddick Feb 2022

Our teacher was super cool and very chill, I’ve never skated before I’m my life but I could actually skate after this lesson, admittedly I got a long way to go but I really felt looked after during the lesson and it felt super easy to pick up.

Jennifer Marr Jan 2022

Dylan was fabulous and was able to keep my 6 yr old engaged for an entire hour session. She loved every minute!

Rebecca Blazek Jan 2022

My experience was amazing! I had my first private skateboard lesson and I learnt so much! My instructor was very patient and he gave me tips and encouragement. He helped get new grip tape after the lesson! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I loved it and I am feeling a lot more confident with my skateboarding now, Thanks Henrietta skate

Summer Bell Jan 2022

Amazing teacher, he was really helpful and kind. Would Definitely recommend going to Henrietta Skate for roller skating lessons

Lisa Beswick Jan 2022

My 8yo and his mate, both absolute beginners, had a private lesson with Ryan - what a great experience.
Ryan was really patient, calm and encouraging with both boys (including a very nervous one) learning some new skills.
The boys faces absolutely lit up when Ryan showed them some tricks and then managed to get both boys landing them by the end (if not quite as effortlessly as Ryan did!)
Everything was made easy from booking to kitting out for the lesson and all with a great location next to the beach - highly recommended.

Nicole Howard Dec 2021

Ryan was incredibly patient and kind toward all the kids in our group of 7 kids (who ranged in age from 6 to 14 years old). The kids were all happy and felt they were able to skateboard at the end of the lesson. We would recommend these lessons for some fun by the beach.

Katie Perez Dec 2021

My son and his 3 friends did a private lesson with Ryan and absolutely loved it. Ryan was really nice and patient with the boys. They definitely learnt the basics and a trick or two and made a lot of improvement. My son loved so much he’s asking to go back for a private 1:1 lesson

Fenella Wythes Dec 2021

Awesome teacher, really good value, gained confidence and learnt tricks will be back for more

Winston Loke Nov 2021

Awesome adult skate lesson! Thanks Dylan! We were a bunch of (ahem) older dudes celebrating a major birthday milestone so wanted to rekindle some youthful antics. Henrietta Skate were great with gear and a really good beginner programme. We learned the basics fast and ended up mastering some tricks as well. Instructions were clear and easy to follow, slowly building up to more difficult manoeuvres and finally a radical trick or two. Thoroughly recommend the adult lesson and will be back for more advanced tutorials.

Can highly recommend him

Lam Ho Nov 2021

Dylan, my instructor was very helpful and patient. The class is amazing. If you are looking for that feeling when you first balanced on your bicycle and ride the first few metres, you will find it in this class. U do need some strengths in your legs and core but nothing excessive at all. Highly recommended.

Braden Sheldrick Oct 2021

Ryan was very nice and helped me with learning more about the basics and got me started on tricks. Great for beginners to gain confidence. Will definitely be back for more - great session.

Sienna Schoenig Oct 2021

We had a great time. Ryan was really good with my daughter who needs a while to warm up to new people and situations, and she learned the basics of how to stand, push off and turn, and then even a couple of tricks. She was hesitant at first but ended up having fun and really enjoyed the lesson. We also got some free tips and suggestions to help us choose the next board. Thank you!

Amanda Tilden Oct 2021

My 7 year old daughter had her first lesson with Dylan. She had a great time and was taught the basics well, how to stand, turn, tac and even a few tricks We will definitely be back again.

Teacher is friendly and on time. He taught my daughter to do beginners tricks and she loved it!

Megan Wild Apr 2021

Dylan was an excellent instructor who helped us (extreme beginners) to feel confident on the skateboard. Great location. All safety equipment available. Fantastic birthday gift.

Alex Walker Apr 2021

Had the most amazing experience, our teacher Dylan (i believe that was his name if it wasn't I'm so sorry I forgot it) was absolutely awesome, super great attitude with a lovely personality and taught both me and my friend perfectly, helping us both individually as well with our different levels of skating abilities. Even though I had a minor base experience with skating I learnt a huge amount that I personally believe has already improved my skating ability. I Will definitely come back to do a lesson again and 100% do it with Dylan again and in particular, go back to that store to buy a skateboard myself with his advice.

The location was ideal and was a really lovely and the most amazing experience and it was the greatest birthday I've had in years thanks to this lesson :)

Lisa Potter Apr 2021

The teacher was ready on time , pleasant and was prepared with extra ramp and resources. My son got such a buzz from the lesson and made some remarkable improvements thanks to his teacher. He wants to come back next weekend. It really made his weekend.

Nok Kaewkham Apr 2021

we lucky today only 2 kids in the class. Good for the first time for skateboard

Sebastian Law Mar 2021

Really fun. Kids had a ball and liked their teacher a lot. They were engaged the whole time

Rowena Twyman Jan 2021

Teacher was great, was engaging and taught them some great new tricks and gave them some good tips. They could do with a larger area to practice in though but with the manly beach backdrop it was nice.

Danijela Murray Nov 2020

The teacher was great, the kids really enjoyed their lesson and all the new tricks they learnt. They are asking to do more lessons already. The staff were great and understanding as we were running late due to traffic but the kids still got their full allocated time.
We will definitely be back and highly recommend Henrietta Skate!

Booked lesson for my grand daughter age 6. Dylon was such a calm patient kind teacher with a relaxed approach that calmed any nerves.
She enjoyed the lesson so much learning the basics as well as a trick.
Dylon also realised two half hour lessons better for her age group and adapted the lesson accordingly. He was so good thank you very much .
