About A Chat with We Are Skate Kids
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Kurtis Colamonico, owner/operator of Skate Kids, has traversed the globe with a who’s who of skating history and competed in several of the largest competitions of the last 15 years. Today he channels all of his expertise and energy into our next generation of skaters.
What equipment is provided? Is there anything visitors need to bring?
We provide helmets, pads and skateboards for kids who don't have equipment.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Skate Kids started because Kurtis now has a 5-year-old son. Skateboarding has been his passion for over 20 years, even though he actually wanted to be a kindergarten teacher when he was growing up. He decided to take it to the next level and combine the two.
What do you love most about your job?
I’m teaching the kids how to work hard. I love watching them build the confidence to stand on the board first, and then they start building confidence toward doing a trick until eventually they just go for it. I wish I had a pro to teach me when I was growing up instead of learning on my own.
