That's a good thing. The self preservation instinct is a strong one. Keep riding and you'll get there. Until then, be safe and ride within your limits - for your sake and everyone else's. Travis Rice didn't get on a board and start throwing double corks right away ya know.
Quoted for truth.
I mountain bike and skateboarded a bunch. Mtn biking is all about speed and I can go really fast though the trees. 25 years of mtn biking in NorCal will help speed.
I am way better on a snowboard than I ever will be on a skateboard....And I have 30+ years riding on a skateboard.
Ice sucks. All ridiers tiptoe in ice, to different levels......an expert will seem like they are flying on the ice compared to a newbie.
