Josh has been teaching skateboarding for the last 7 years, both privately and at indoor skateparks. Currently studying psychology at Ryerson, Josh hopes that skateboarding can be a bridge to success for children. “The skills of patience, practice, and perseverance translate to all other areas of our lives. Skateboarding fosters confidence and a self identity for kids which can change their lives. It did for me.” We here at Skateloft hope that we can spark those qualities
