    Tip: if you don’t want to break bones or sprain your ankles, GO FAST. Learn all your tricks going fast. This requires you to learn how to fall correctly (rolling back up to being on your feet), but in the long run, your weight won’t be coming straight down but always forward. This means less gravity pulling on your ankles and knees and shins toward the center of the earth and more force pulling you diagonal and therefore into a slide or roll when you fall (fail).
    You will end up with more road rash but that’s better than being out for four months as your muscles waste away in a cast.
    Tip #2: if you do end up in a cast, take a supplement called Glutamine EVERY DAY. It limits muscle wasting (why your arm gets skinny in a cast) and maintains the strength of unused muscles (you’ll keep your muscle memory AND your muscles after your cast is removed!).

    Tip #3: Go fast. Get some good bearings (Bones Swiss are always a favorite staple). Go fast. Shred around and learn how to get the most out of your pushes. Go fast. It’s more fun and you feel all burly with the wind in your face roaring in your ears. Go fast. A skateboard is a toy. Never forget that. It’s meant to be a fun thing to play with. Soooooooooooooooooo
    GO FAST!

    Good video in terms of trying to curb other people's opinions about yourself in public. But let's get real! Skateboarding is NOT about being accepted by anyone. It's about that piece of wood, four wheels, and the thrill you get doing whatever it is you like on it. Who cares if people think you're a newbie because you "mall grab" or push mongo. Do your thang!

    I’m not looking to learn cool tricks. I just wanna be able to go on a ramp, turn, ollie onto a curb, skate off a curb, and cruise at a fast speed.

  • UchihaObitoうちはオビト

    I'm a beginner but I found a easy way by picking up a board just hold 1 foot on the tail and make it like if you wanna drop in but you bend down a little bit and grab the board
