Pain. Fear. Two barriers in life which stop us from achieving our greatest desires. Recently, i broke my wrist and The cast comes of next week. My friend who i've skated with so many times and knows me better than most people said to me, " you'd be crazy to skate again...

Fear exists in the mind and prevents you from succeeding. Challenge yourself, challenge your fears, challenge the unknown; the unknown becomes known and fear is neutralised.
Skate hard, have fun, meditate: simple.
I taught myself how to ride a skateboard about 4 years ago. My older brother had a friend who was totally into skateboarding and could do a bunch of tricks. He came over to our house a few times to hang out and almost always brought his skateboard with him. I remember going...
skateboards, I bought one yesterday for $40 the wheels are bad but in replacing them. Are they good for someone who is bad but wants to learn how to skate? I got it in 7.75 if that's makes any difference
as a piece of wood with wheels. But to me it's a key, to my freedom. I feel free when I have those 4 wheels beneath me, feeling every flaw in pavement, the wind rushing past. I feel more comfortable with wheels underneath me than on my own 2 feet
..hmm well I love it. It was all I had over the summer. I'm pro, I've gone to tournaments all over state. Wish I had a better skate park up here. Can't wait till winter is over, butttt exited for snowboarding:)

I love lifting weights but nothing gives me the same feeling as banging out a tre flip catching bolts and rolling off. I miss it.
When I'm mad, happy, bored, for whatever reason, i go to the skatepark and it feels like I'm in a dream. i don't have to worry about anything when I'm skating. its a great place to meet others that like skating too!
I do it every day/ any chance I get when I'm free. what sucks is not being able to skate like before. what I mean is having other responsibilities that get in the way; work, school, "adult real world type stuff".
so young??? This was my first (and only) board! I've rode this board almost everyday for the past 7 years, broke a lot of bones because of it, had numerous concussions, and now it's time to bury it, sadly.
experience with a Penny Board because of how small it is and easy to transport. But I am hesitant. Skateboarding fascinates me but I'm afraid I wont like it. I dont want to be spending more than a hundred dollars and it ends up being a waste. I would like to use it as a mode of...
