Hi! And welcome to the Keep Pushing website!
Founded by skater and artist Rae Smith (@lookslikerae) in 2018, Keep Pushing combines skateboarding lessons, workshops and events to form a community of skateboarders who support and inspire eachother regardless of age, gender, race, sexuality, ability or anything else.Rae herself is intersex and has been prominant in both the girl skate scene and queer skate scene – running workshops, making zines and artwork and teaching lessons around the world with brands and charities despite only having skated for 4 years herself.
Keep Pushing now consists of a growing team of skaters dedicated to the goal of making skating more accessible, breaking down the barriers that prevent people from getting on a board, and shining a spotlight on a more diverse range of people
Keep Pushing has now worked with Hackney Council, Young Hackney, Nike SB, Vans, house of Vans, Camp VC and more to bring creative skateboarding lessons, workshops, events and media to a wider range of people.
All created by skaters, for skaters, with just one goal. To keep people pushing! Pushing boundaries, pushing limits and literally pushing themselves along on their boards. If you’re a woodpusher or an aspiring woodpusher, then you’ve come to the right place.
Whether you’re stepping on a board for the first time or you want to improve on your switchflips – we’ve got you covered! We work with all skaters – from mums and dads who are looking for a new challenge, to fearless 3 year olds taking on the world – and everyone in between.
We offer 1:1 and 2:1 private lessons, group lessons, parties and events, workshops, free beginner sessions and more!
