fundamentals and stuff
I like skateboarding. There, I said it. That wasn t so hard. It s fast, it s fun
it s painful, what more could you ask for. There s nothing I like better than to hang
out with my friends and skate. Here I will explain places, tricks, and the right way
to fall all in this fun-filled skateboarding paper.
If you re going to skate, yours going to need to go somewhere. The
Huntington Transit Center is an excellent place for beginners to thrash up. They
have phat curbs and a good planter. If you want more of a challenge, you might
want to try skating a McLoughlin Middle School. They have high planters to do
tricks off of. If you want to skate just for the fun of it, you might want to try skating
at Pasco High. They have a nice three stair and fun curbs.
Now let me get into the tricks. This is the most challenging part of skating.
The first and most important trick in skateboarding is the ollie. To accomplish this
trick, you must first put your front foot in the middle of the board, then put your
back foot on the tail of the board. Now your going to want to slam or pop the tail to
the ground very fast, jump up, slide your front foot forward to even out and land.
Another fairly simple trick is the pop shove-it. Take your ollie position, now pop
the tail and scoop it back to bring the nose of the board to where the tail was. Then
you land on the board, ride away, and give yourself a pat on the back. A very tricky
and unpredictable trick is the kickflip. Take your ollie position, but move your front
foot more off of the board. Pop the tail and drag you front foot off of the board,
thus producing a flip. Next, land, ride away and smile.
Now to the most painful part of skating, falling. If you skateboard, your going
to fall no matter what. There are two ways to fall, one, fall and hurt yourself very
bad, and two, fall and hurt yourself not so bad. To do number two, you must do the
tuck and roll move. To do the tuck and roll move, you simply must remember. If
you don t remember while your in mid air, you will hurt yourself bad. The tuck and
roll is basically a way to absorb most of the impact to your leg, side and arm.
When you fall, just roll as if you where rolling on the ground. This is a very good
move to remember and will help you very, very much.
All to sad are the skateboarding breed. The man (cops) are keeping us down.
Skateboarding is rapidly being outlawed in most places of the Tri-Cities. Let us
pray that this fun, dangerous sport will not be brought to a halt.
