Marko has 15+ years experience working with youth ages 5-16 as an adult volunteer with local youth organizations, while his own kids were involved.
He has taught children ages 5+ how to skate and various other activities. It was during this time when he developed an effective combination of teaching formulas and applied it to skateboard lessons, resulting in fun, safe, effective and balanced skateboard progression.
SK8 GYM, Corp. started organically in the San Francisco Bay Area in early 2018 by our founder Marko Kosta. A dedicated father, educator and long time community youth volunteer. He holds a Bachelor’s in Business Administration and after 15 years as a marketing executive, he combined his professional skills with his life long passion for skateboarding to launch SK8 GYM. He currently helps with volunteer skate clinics for special needs youth and adults.
Marko’s passion for skateboarding and teaching drives him to help students interested in learning the basics of skateboarding and advancing their skateboarding skills while ensuring they are safe, engaged and having a great time.
