OVERVIEW 1st Step Skateboarding Getting Started
411 Productions is proud to announce its newest division – First Step. Serving as an encyclopedia of skateboarding instructional videos for the next generation of skateboarders, First Step provides the first time skater with needed direction and guidance from their first push in order to ensure a long and fun-filled skateboarding experience. Salman Agah
First Step is producing the ultimate trick tip video series with something to offer every skateboarder from the newest beginner to the most advanced pro.
Dave Metty has been recruited to spearhead the First Step series as Project Manager and Host. Dave is a skateboarder for life; he’s served as the YMCA Skate Camp Director for over a decade, developed curriculum to coach everyone from novice to expert skateboarders, worked as both filmer and producer for several skateboard video projects, been a team manager and has judged X Games, Gravity Games and Tampa Pro contests.
To make First Step a reality, Dave has teamed up with his close friend and Thrasher Magazine 1993 Skater of the Year, Salman Agah. Salman, who has became a legend among skateboarders for pioneering switchstance skating, will fill the role of Director and Instructional Host, teaching viewers technique and execution. As a revolutionary, skating for 25 years with 12 years of professional experience as well as a passion for giving direction to young skaters, Salman is the perfect fit for the First Step series.
Together, Dave and Salman take time to gradually ease skateboarders along the learning curve. While Dave recalls history and meaning involved with a trick, Salman explains and illustrates every detail of the execution. The First Step team at 411 Productions is committed and passionate about introducing new skateboarders to the sport and helping keep all skateboarders progressing and participating forever! "We realize with skateboarding as with life, there is always a First Step," Dave Metty.
