My name is Shayne Robinson and I have been skating for over 30 years, be that on a skateboard, rollerblades, roller skates or ice skates.

I have always been into alternative sports that have a little bit of an adrenaline rush attached to them. I found that I never really “fitted in” with mainstream sports and skating was a perfect fit for someone who was a “little different” 

In my younger years, I was a sponsored skateboarder, 5 times South Africa Aggressive Rollerblade champion and I represented South Africa at the Inline Hockey World Championships in Chicago.

I have a passion for skating and a passion for teaching, so this seemed like the next logical step for me. The aim of The Skate School is to get more children, especially girls into skating, be that on a skateboard, roller skates or rollerblades .

I am also really keen to teach adults as well, so if you want to learn then this is the place for you. I look forward to sharing my love of skating with all of you.
