Is there any skaters out there?

I am thinking of starting to skate. I have never ever tried a skateboard before. I only have a past with some rollebladers. So I am totally a newbee, which boards would u recommend to a newbee, any tips would be greatly appricated!

Avoid cliffs, bridges and other steep drops

If you just wanna ride around through the streets get a cruiser board. It can ride around rough ground. If you wanna go into more like street skating (riding curbs or doing some easy tricks) get a standard skateboard. If you are already dedicated in your mind that you want to loke it and invest a bit of time into it (not just like ride once and done), buy a skateboard from a local skateshop and not from walmart or similar. It’ll cost you 5-6x that much, but it’ll serve you longer and the materials are high quality. Not sure if this is going to help you in any way, but here’s my 2 cents :joy:

Thank you Nomfork.:wink:

I skateboarded for six years but now I need my body good for work so I retired the boards. Have fun and prepare for pain.

Ps . Watch out for stones, they are your enemy, lol.

Oh and it’s all in the knees, you gotta be flexible and swift, limber and move like a cat. It’s very fun and I had a blast.

I love the sound the wheels make when they met stone.

Me too, but don’t like the sound of my chin scraping the ground :laughing:

I have a big nose, so it will possibly take much damage lol :wink:

Just get ready to tuck and roll, and then get used to it.
