I know, I’m a girl/lady and I have finally started to skateboard. Truth be told, it was something I always wanted to do since I was 9yrs old but, was too scared and well I couldn’t balance on the board when I tried previously. So, I ended up rollerblading then. There’s so may other things I’ve always wanted to pick up and maybe I would with this new take on life. Some of the things that I’ve always wanted to do are – snowboarding, surfing and dirtbike. I love extreme sports. Because I didn’t have a bike license and obviously didn’t get my hands on a dirtbike to do Motorcross, I ended up doing Autocross with my car when I had my license which lead me to racing semi-pro.
I got myself a Primitive skateboard. I love the graphic and the black trucks. So, how’s skateboarding been? I would say I’m actually impressed that I could stand up on the board and balance and move as well. LOL. Didn’t think I would pick up the basics that fast if I were to be honest. Maybe, I’m just naturally sporty so picking it up isn’t that difficult to me. I can’t wait to be able to do tricks and jump of things. I think it helps that I’m starting to live life without fear. My Mom’s passing definitely have woken up a new side in me.
I think one of the many things that I love about skateboarding is the balance you need and how technical it can get. I like that you can set up your deck/board to your own liking. I think the one thing I never knew until I started hanging out with skaters is that you’ll eventually break your board and you’ll run through shoes very fast.
I noticed that my left ankle was slightly sore after 2 days of skating so, I’ve placed an order for an ankle brace as I have the tendency to twist and hurt it. I hope with the brace, I will be able to do more. I’ve been spending lots of time checking out skating videos and is it crazy that I think I’ll be able to Ollie soon?
What’s an Ollie? Well, it’s when you can jump with your skateboard. It’s being explained better in the video below.
I feel that skateboarding is a good way to train your brain, have discipline plus it’s a good workout too with all the balancing and repetitions to perfect a trick/skill on the board. I finally can understand why skateboarding is a culture.
So, skateboarding is something new to me which brings me joy. What have you tried or taken up recently that makes you smile?
