Learning Tricks on a Balance Board

Learning to skateboard and then do tricks is a bit daunting at first, but a lot of the fun of doing it is in the trying in the first place. To speed up the learning process, try practicing on a balance board. It can be the fastest way to increase your balance and learn to do ollies. Another great advantage is that you can practice with a balance board in your own driveway or patio – where you don't have to be traveling at the same time that you're trying to jump.

Not much on my mind right now. Today was a complete loss. So it goes. I've just been sitting around waiting for something to happen. I've basically been doing nothing , but I guess it doesn't bother me.
