We want you to be completely satisfied with your Ninja event. If you are dissatisfied in any way with the event you have attended, we’ll give you another opportunity, free of charge, to receive the skills instruction experience that meets your expectations.
Which Ninja event is right for me?
You’ve got questions; we’ve got answers! Check here for a breakdown of which event is truly right for you.
When should I expect information on when and where to meet for my event?
We send out all the details the Wednesday evening prior to your event. We’ll include what to bring, when and where to meet and all other event information you may need.
Are rental bikes available?
While we do not demo or rent bikes ourselves, we are more than happy to help connect you with a local bike shop who can set you up with a shredding machine for your Ninja event!
Whats the difference between a Clinic, Mini-Clinic, Camp, Adventure and a Tour?
Each of our events offers something a little different. From focusing a specific skills, a group of skills progressions or just out shredding some rad single-track. Venues vary too, from local community parks to bike parks in far-away countries! To learn all the details and choose which is right for you, check here.
Where do I meet for my Ninja skills event?
We will send out an email on the WEDNESDAY prior to your event confirming the exact meeting location, time and instructor contact information.
What should I bring to my clinic or camp?
Helmets are mandatory, so make sure to bring one. Additionally, we recommend that you bring gloves, pads, a topped-off hydration pack or a couple of full water bottles, and some snacks. Oh yeah, and don’t forget your bike and shoes! If you are attending one of our full-day or weekend camps in a remote location, consider packing a lunch. Keep an eye on your email the days prior to your event with further recommendations.
Do I need pads?
Pads are not mandatory at of any of our clinics or camps, but we highly recommend you bring (and use) them. We’ve seen a set of pads give our participants that added level of safety and comfort needed for them to have a light-bulb breakthrough moment.
What kind of bike do I need?
Hard-tail or full-suspension, cross country or downhill, 26”, 27.5″ or 29” wheels, disc brakes or cantilever brakes, it doesn’t matter! Any kind of mountain bike will do as long as it’s in good working order.
What kind of pedals should I have on my bike?
We recommend you ride whatever pedals you’re most comfortable with. However, we have found that it’s much easier to learn the majority of the skills with flat pedals.
What is your policy on cancellations?

Unfortunately, most of the parks we teach at do not allow e-bikes. It’s best to check with us to see if they are permitted at the venue you’re considering joining us at.
What level of fitness do I need in order to attend a camp or clinic?
You do not have to be an elite athlete to attend or participate in ANY of our clinics—basic health and fitness is just fine! However, it should be noted that some of our camp locations are more demanding than others, and do require more of a fitness base. If you are concerned about this, please contact us to check for the recommended fitness level of the camp you’re interested in.
What happens if rain is in the forecast at my clinic or camp?
Clinics and Camp may be rescheduled because of rain or other inclement weather. We will notify you with as much notice as possible if a reschedule of your camp or clinic is required.
While gratuity is not required or expected, it’s certainly appreciated by your instructors! 5-10% for each guest is Industry Standard for exceptional service, support, and expertise. Unless you’d like to tip separately, instructors divide tips among themselves.
