About Us

We’ve been rolling since 1999 and are London’s longest running skate school. Almost every skate instructor or skate school in London was certified by Skatefresh Founder Asha Kirkby or trained within Skatefresh’s own apprentice programme.

Skatefresh’s unique foundation in correct technique comes from Asha’s background as an artistic figure skater in her teens. This expertise is now the benchmark of quality and has put people aged 4-83yrs safely on wheels.

Skatefresh offers the widest range of group classes in London, however we do organise groups and private lessons in Brighton and Reading as well.

Do let us know on booking if you wish to have a specific instructor for private lessons, otherwise we will choose who best matches your needs and timetable.

All Skatefresh instructors hold public liability insurance, are HSE First Aid certified and have current CRB/DBS checks if teaching children and young people.

Skatefresh has been involved in skate training activities for Disney (2015 ‘Soy Luna’) and the BBC (2009 ‘Skate Nation’). Asha has been featured in numerous articles about the fitness aspect of skates and promoting inline skates as a mode of transport, making Skatefresh a household name for anyone with a pair of skates in the UK.

Skatefresh is currently comprised of seven skate instructors who share our skate school’s joy of getting people to skate well while having a great time. Each of them does this both through private tuition and taking turns in teaching our group skate lessons in Hyde Park.
