Markus Neustaedter started skateboarding in 2000 at the age of 13. From the moment he stepped on a board it was love at first sight. With a deep passion and fervor to progress Markus relentlessly honed his craft until 2008 when he was approached by a reputable skateboard school in east mesa to begin working summer camps and lessons. He worked his way up to a top coaching position over the next few years where he received many accolades for his unique coaching style integrating repetition based skateboarding with a light hearted, humorous, fun loving disposition. His students have received many awards due to these proven coaching techniques in the King of the Groms, Phoenix Am, Tampa Am, and world famous X-games competitions. In the summer of 2013 Markus made the difficult decision to leave the skateboard school he had been employed at for so many years and began a revolutionary program known as Skate True.
Skate True is the valley’s premiere and original skatepark shuttle service providing both skateboard sessions and skateboard lessons. With Skate True each outing is 4 hours in duration from departure time to return time. During the 4 hours a Skate True client is guaranteed to skate a minimum of two different skateparks. The parks are constantly revolving through a broad 33 park cycle throughout the greater phoenix area repeating parks as seldom as possible. By signing up to do Skate True consistently on a weekly or bi weekly basis participants will skate a wide spectrum of diverse parks all over the city!
Skate True provides water and snacks throughout the session, and we always stop at a Quiktrip between the two parks so the skaters can get additional treats if they would like. 15 year skateboard veteran Markus Neustaedter guides and skates with all the tours so on any moments notice you have experienced coaching and training individualized to your skill level, needs, and interests in trick selection. Or if you just want to cruise the parks with your buddies and skate free the whole time, thats an option too!
