A little about So.Cal School of Skateboarding founder Richard Zuccarello;
Richard Zuccarello is 33 years of age and resides in Venice, CA
He has been skateboarding at a sponsored and semi-professional level for 20 years.
His sponsors over the years have company's such as Gordon and Smith,
AZP Skateboards and JFA skateboards. He is currently skating for LIB Technology's skateboards, Grind King truck company, PEP wheels and Old Star Skateboard Shop. He has competed on both the NSA and CASL competition circuit over the years. He was invited to skate in the Vans Warped tour Demos in 1996, 1997 and again in 2003. He has won many trophy's in local and a major competition throughout his career.
Since the late 80's he participated in numerous skateboarding Demos and small events. He has a good sense of community. He has been teaching skateboarding to people over the years and has always dreamed of someday having an organized teaching program.He believes the reward is in seeing students smile after learning something that is both difficult and physically challenging. In December of 2002 he came up with the idea and name Southern California School of Skateboarding.
The idea was to develop a curriculum and teach skateboarding safety and basic movements. The overall goal was to make young skateboarders feel as if they are a part of something. So. Cal School of Skateboarding presents students with "Certificates of Completion" for the first two Levels of our their curriculum. This idea became a reality when Richard Zuccarello partnered up Heidi Lemmon at SPAUSA
three months ago and buy doing so has received the sanctioning and instructor certification that will play an eminent role in development of his programs .
A Little about Southern California School of Skateboarding;
Our number one product that we offer is safety!!!
Students become members of SPAUSA and receive photo ID'S that are good at any SPAUSA sanctioned skate park, facility or event. Once becoming a members students are evaluated by our instructors to determine their skill level . Our private and group lessons are then tailored to suit their individual needs and learning abilities.
We plan on getting a company van soon so that we can start offering
day camps to our students. During a day camp students will be taken to two or three skate parks and someplace for lunch. These day camps will be conducted by Richard Zuccarello and our head instructor Zak Groove. At day camp students will have the opportunity to receive lessons on different terranes at various skate parks.
We are currently developing an after school program with schools, in which students will receive a credit in P.E. for participating in skateboarding classes that will be held at our facility.
We are also working closely with Heidi at SPAUSA and the inner city outreach programs she has helped to develop. Our instructors donate time each week to teach children who qualify for these programs.
