About the Company

Shredder Skate School is a fast growing skateboard school based in the East of England.

Our dream is to bring the joys of skateboarding to anyone who wishes to start, regardless of gender, background or sexuality. Our skateboard classes are based on fun, alongside progression, as we aim to create strong social bonds through skateboarding in the local community.

Shredder Skate School was created as part of a campaign by Max Jamieson to raise funds and awareness for the 'now' current skatepark in Burwell, Cambridgeshire in 2016. After the completion of the skatepark, the sessions provided proved so popular with those that we taught, we decided to carry on spreading the joys of skateboarding through our coaching!
