KTR at PHX AM April 5-6

If you’re going to be at the 2014 PHX AM, which is held at Desert West Skatepark in Phoenix, AZ, or tuning into the webcast, look out for KTR skaters: Alana Smith, Jagger Eaton, Jett Eaton and Shane Short, who will be competing. Shane Short will be competing with a broken wrist, but this hasn’t stopped him from killing it in the past!  Good luck to all the riders!




Brand New Lockers!

If you haven’t seen them already, KTR has new lockers for use during camps, lessons & sessions. Keep your backpack, phone & other belongings out of plain view.

Lockers are $3.00 per session at Open Skates and can also be reserved during classes & camps. Lockers are cleared out at the end of each session. We have a total of 40 lockers, so these are first come first serve.

1. Pay $3.00 via the payment slot on the lockers.
2. Machine will prompt you to create a personal code/pswd to access your locker.
3. Locker automatically pops open, and is yours for length of session.

If you have any questions, stop by the front desk for help.



Feature Skater: Mats Hatlem

Mats is a skater from Norway who spent the past months at KTR learning and perfecting 80 tricks!  Already a ripper before he came, it’s been awesome to take part in his progression.  Such a cool kid, we’re all so stoked to have gotten the chance to know him.  With that.. here’s some shredding and words by Mats!
