taahir motala

London, UK

I am a skater and hip hop/rnb producer I enjoy skateboarding because it gives me a sense of accomplishment when I commit to learning something new. I have helped a lot of people learn how to skate as I used to run the skateboarding club at my university. I like seeing people become more comfortable on the board and push themselves to learn new things. So I would say it is my enthusiasm and patience that makes me stand out as a coach.

level 1 sports leadership qualification

I have learnt how to ride around comfortably, ollie, ride fakie, ride switch, pop shuvit, front shuvit, front 180, back 180 and manual. I have skated small stair sets, ledges, curbs, gaps, learnt how to pump on ramps, drop in and do tricks on a bank.


"Jerry Seinfeld “I’ll tell you one of the great activities is skateboarding. To learn to do a skateboard trick, how many times do you gotta get something wrong til you get it right? …And you hurt yourself, and you learn to do that trick, now you got a life lesson. Every time I see those skateboard kids, I think ‘those kids’ll be alright.’ ”"
