London Skate Life (LS Life) is more than just a skate school. It is a community of skaters where you can always find someone to roll around the city and have fun with. With LS Life you can find professional skaters coming from all over the world who can share their experience and knowledge throughout the different disciplines of inline skating, including fitness, freestyle, dance and skatepark. We offer classes all around London for adults and kids, from first-timers to advanced skaters.
London Skate Life was founded by German Moreno in 2014 when he first moved to the British capital. There, with the help and collaboration of several skaters from the London blading scene, LS Life has grown from skate school, to skate club, to a community of passionate skaters who love to skate.
Skating can be a lot more than what you expect it to be. It is more than just the quality of your skates, and the skills that you have. It can turn a workout into a fun, rewarding activity. Skating is a way to connect yourself to the world around you in a very special way. It can give you freedom, adrenaline, motivation, control and is also a strong social tool to meet people to hang out with and shred around your city.
“Happy On Skates” is our motto.

Yuval - Instructor
Skating from a young age but took a break from inline skating in favour of skiing and ice skating. Played ice hockey at University but realised that he really mostly enjoyed the skating part. Started inline skating again when a friend lent him some old skates and has been parallel sliding ever since. Hates running. Thinks bicycles are boring. "Teaching is a two-way street. When you teach you end up learning just as much as your students, if not more. Teaching allows me to improve my own skills whilst helping others do the same. Its a mutually beneficial experience. Teaching is the best way to learn" "Big wheels make you taller"
Yineska - Instructor
Yineska has been skating since she was a child back in Venezuela where she was born. She started freeskating in 2006 in the streets of Madrid where she lived for 4 years. She brought her passion with her when she moved to London in 2010 but it was in 2017, after she started taking lessons with London Skate Life, that she understood that skating is more than a sport, it’s a lifestyle. One of the things she loves most is being part of the London Skate Community. Skating is one of her biggest passions alongside teaching, running and dancing.
Stephen - Instructor
Stephen has been skating most of his life. 17 years of rolling along and jumping off anything he can see. It all started when he was 8 in a skatepark in Scotland where he learned the way of the ramps. Later in his teens, he then took his wheels to the streets. Small wheels and grind plates soon evolved into free skates when he discovered how much fun could be had with bigger wheels. You’ll now find him cruising around the London streets looking for new obstacles to skate on and new people to skate with also behind Slickwilllies till to recommend you the best wheels!
Giorgos Daios - Instructor
I started skating when I was about 7 years old in Greece and I was skating all the time. I bought aggressive skates when I was 13 although there were no skateparks in my hometown. Later I fell in love with speed. I have won 2/2 inline races in Thessaloniki Greece.
I was also a ski national cup holder in 2010, two times national ice hockey champion in Greece.
I was ice skating instructor for kids & adults for 4 years and I can't wait to start teaching inline too! The feeling I get back from all those lesson is just undescribable!Donald took up skating on quads to pass time 10 years, and immediately fell in love.

Skating has helped me meet new people, make lifelong friends and taken me to amazing places to skate, including Barcelona, twice.
Roller skating is a big part of his life, it’s a fun way of keeping active and fit. Donald says “you meet the nicest people on quads!”
Michael “Copper” - Instructor
90’s Kid. Old School. Borrowed a pair of inline skates in 94’. Bought his first pair two weeks later. From day one involved in the aggressive skating community. Without any skateparks available at the time, he cooperated with various organizations and sponsors to design and construct some of the first skateparks back in his home country. This allowed the kids in the community to progress their skills, becoming better skaters, and to push the sport forward. At present you can find him #urbanskating in Cities across Europe, at skateparks in London or… shouting: “Keep left” as LFNS MARSHAL.
