Carver Sessions

Sunday, August 4th, 3:00 – 5:00 PM (FULL)
Sunday, August 18th, 3:00 – 5:00PM
Jimmie Simpson Park

You asked and we listened! Surf the Greats is stoked to announce the first edition of our Carver Sessions. Whether you have been skateboarding for years or have never been on a skateboard, come learn to surfskate with us. We have reserved the outdoor hockey rink at our Jimmie Simpson Park (how Canadian!?)—just down the street from the shop—so that we can practice in a safe and supportive environment.

Carver Skateboards were designed to resemble the motion of surfing on land. They are made to improve surfing, balance, leg/core muscle memory, on a variety of terrain. The term "Surfskate“ also comes from the movement on the surfboard, which is very reminiscent of surfing waves. The feet and movements in the upper body are very similar to those of surfing. These surfskates are extremely manoeuvrable and you can drive even the smallest curves easily. They make for the perfect cross-training oppotunities for surfers, snowboarders, wakeboarders and anyone who wants to improve balance and have fun.
Skill levels: From complete beginners to intermediate surfers and skateboarders.
  • Elbows, knees and wrist pads
  • Carver Skateboard
  • Qualified Instructors
  • Photographs
Not Included:
  • Helmet
The use of helmets and protective gear is mandatory for this class. We will provide elbow, knee and wrist pads for all participants but paticipants must bring their own helmet. A bicycle helmet works just fine in case you don't have a skateboarding helmet.
Each session is limited to 10 participants, with a maximum ratio of 4 participants per instructor.
Price: $35 + HST
At the beginning of each session, our instructors will split the groups according to their skill level and will tailor the instruction for optimized individual progress. Sign up now using the schedule below as space is limited.
For any questions or inquiries email us at, or call the shop at 647-479-8969.


Terms & Conditions


You can cancel your class online or through our app up to 24 hours before class start time to avoid losing the class. We do not accept email or phone cancellations. If you have not canceled your class, you will receive an email the following day to advise you that you have been late canceled.


Our late cancel policies are based on student feedback to help create a more fluid and relaxing sign in. If we hold a spot for you and you don’t show up it means that someone else could not get into the class and this is frustrating for people who have made the time to show up. NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS are given for classes missed. 

If you have a 5-class pass, the class you missed will be automatically deducted.

We are sorry, but we cannot make individual exceptions. You have until 24 hours before class starts to add yourself in or remove yourself based on your schedule, so you can always wait until you know you can definitely make it to save your spot!


All sales are final and not eligible for a refund unless Surf the Greats cannot meet its commitment to deliver a class. You have up to 24 hours to cancel or reschedule a class, and your account will be credited. Credits are non-transferable and may be used toward other workshops or products in-store and online. Cash refunds can only be issued if Surf the Greats cannot meet its commitment to deliver a class. NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS are given for classes missed. 


Our goal is to create a space for as many students as possible in every single class we offer, without overcrowding the class or letting space go to waste unnecessarily. In order to do that for each of you, we have a few guidelines in place:


All spaces are available to book online up to 14 days in advance and pre-registration is required to guarantee a spot in your favourite classes. Pre-registration is available through our MindBody online app.



Even when a class appears full, you may, and should, add yourself to the waitlist. When a cancellation is made, the first name on the wait list gets automatically added to the class, and you receive an automatic email and/or text message at the time. Once you get added to the class from the waitlist you become responsible for attending or canceling.


If you are not signed in at the desk or at the beach within 10 min before class starts and there are students hoping and waiting for a spot in class, we open the available spots in class to those who are on the waitlist, and your reservation might thus be forfeited. We also start our classes on time and will not accept any late entry to classes.


You must show valid Photo ID with each class attended (whether that is on a 5-class pass or Introductory class). The name on your identification must match your name on the account. This is so we have the chance to get to know you! No extensions or holds. You must not have taken ANY classes at Surf the Greats from October 1, 2017 to qualify for either of these introductory passes.


The world can be a tough enough place as it is. Treat your fellow participants with consideration and respect … and if someone looks like they’re new to the studio don’t be afraid to say hi and let them know the lay of the land in a compassionate way… remember we were all new to a studio at some point.
