Snowboarding Forum - Snowboard Enthusiast Forums - Skateboarding
I am not a pro boarder. In fact I am a very late fan of the sport. This is more a diary than anything else, although comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm going to try to keep track of how I do (and what I do) from season to season; what works and what fails; and how I improve over time.

Timmytard posted an item about a regular get-together in Coquitlam by longboarders. Every Saturday around 11am in Town Centre park. I missed it this weekend, but I'll check it out next weekend. Might end up with a longboard after all.

2011-09-03 Very very beginning skateboarding

Started today. I found my snowboarding helmet and removed the snowboarding-related stuff like the ear covers and the goggle-strap hook on the back. I should get a proper summer helmet when I get a chance. Also some gloves and maybe knee pads.

Anyway, first time on the board was in my garage. The floor's nice and flat, controlled environment, and no audience . The first thing I ran into is my skating has to be different. I skate by pushing on my heel edge in snowboarding,...

Bought a skateboard. Damn, I'm a pathetic addicted SOB. Hopefully this will give me my fix until the season starts. The balance beam is helping my balance and all, and well worth doing, but it's not inspiring.
