Do you search some skateboard brands logos for the best skateboard. It’s up to you. Alright, let’s discuss some awesome skateboarding tricks, Landing tricks and avoiding injury has very little to do with luck. If you ever catch yourself thinking, “Man, I really hope I get lucky and somehow pull this off without breaking my ankle,” you probably need to reconsider what you’re about to do. Keep in mind that there is a reasonable amount of risk that you should be willing to take, given your current skill level, and that it will eventually increase to warrant you trying that really dangerous trick. Also, don’t fall into the trap of thinking that even though you’ve spent the last hour trying something and haven’t landed it yet, that adding another hour is going to make a whole lot of difference. Usually, if you’re ready to land a trick, it’s either going to happen, or you’re at least going to stomp the board down in the first 10 or 20 tries, so just remember that there’s a big difference between practicing and killing yourself trying to land a trick that you’re not ready to do.
You should always keep a skate tool and extra hardware with you when you’re skating. The bolts that hold the trucks to the deck have a tendency to come loose on you while you’re riding, so it’s really nice to be able to keep them tightened down and also have the ability to replace them should one of them break on you. Next let’s talk about the orientation of the skate board. If you skate a popsicle shaped deck like this one: you might notice a slight difference in the width and the concave of the nose versus the tail. Now most skaters will almost religiously keep their back foot over top of what the manufacturer suggests is the tail, but you can just ignore that suggestion altogether and skate both the tail and the nose equally. If you make it a habit to pop your tricks off of both ends of the board, you can effectively double the amount of time you can ride it before you start to get razor tail.
I want to tell you the 3things you’re going to need to be able to enjoy skateboarding as a beginner. The first is going to be an appropriate pair of shoes. The second is going to be a real skateboard, not one that you can get from a department store like Wal-Mart or Target, and third is going to be a smooth section of concrete. Without all three of these, your ability to ride and do tricks successfully is going to be drastically reduced, and you’re going to feel like skateboarding is not very much fun. Alright so finally, it’s possible to take skateboarding too seriously.
Always keep in the back of your mind that failure is a huge part of this sport, and if you let it, it can really get under your skin sometimes. Instead, know when to throw the towel in for the day on something that’s causing you a lot of grief, and remember why you started skate boarding in the first place, and focus on doing things that you enjoy and consider fun.
