Where are we going today?

Skateboarding is such an exciting sport! It's great to keep kids active, and it really gives their confidence a boost when they finally land that trick they have been trying to master!

It's always find somewhere great to really let lose, and Kona Skateboard Park in Jacksonville is there just for that purpose!

Did you know that Kona Skatepark is OLDEST, and privately owned outdoor skatepark in the entire USA? That's pretty impressive!

If you want to just hang out with the family and enjoy skating in your own free time, there are a number of open sessions that you can join in on. We know you can get those jumps and flips down! It's a great sport to spend with the family, encouraging each other on. 

Do you have kids that have always wanted to skate but have never tried? Then get down to Kona Skatepark because they offer a variety of lessons where boys and girls can learn all about the sport! They even have lessons for those intermediate and advanced skaters too.

Beginners will learn how to set up the board, as well as where to place their feet, and then those basic movements - keeping the momentum, rolling, carving and turning.

For those intermediate skaters, you can learn how to handle faster speeds, how to connect the lines, and an introduction to the Ollie!

Advanced? Well, we're keen to see your tricks! With these lessons you can learn those really impressive moves like rails, ledges, grinds and gaps. Pretty impressive!

Kona Skatepark also have Go Skate Days, filled with fun like Family Skate Zone, skating events, music and theater! How cool is that! They also offer kids camps.

So why not pick up those boards and get the family out to Kona Skatepark - how exciting!

    I had a longboard deck that needed new trucks, wheels, etc. and Kona was the closest store around. Inside the store they had a great stock of items, and the staff there were awesome.
