HOW TO SKATEBOARD FOR BEGINNERS | HOW TO SKATEBOARD EPISODE 1
How to Become an Amazing Skateboarder
Don't be scared.This is the most important thing. If you get scared, chances are you won't do the trick. And half the time, you would have landed the trick the first time had you just committed. So don't ever wuss out. How, you ask? Well, for starters, when you go up to a trick, come up with a word you can use to get yourself to commit. Some good ones are "Balls Out," "what is so hard about this trick anyway," "Be a Man," or "Just do it." These should really help you.
Don't get stuck skating the same old thing every single day.You will get very bored very quickly by doing the same old stuff every day, just riding, say, a Factor X ramp, or a small flat bar in your garage, or even a set of stairs near your house. Try to go out and do a new spot every day. Get your friends or even parents to drive you and some friends to different skate spots or parks--this way, you can get used to skating a bunch of different things.
Don't limit your skating to skateparks.Most skateparks don't have the best street obstacles, and you'd be lucky to have a stair set at the park. Instead, look for skate spots at places like supermarkets and schools. (Namely, Jewel Osco's Shipping Docks work good, and most mini malls have some good stair sets.)
Don't be afraid to get hurt.It doesn't matter if you slam while trying something cool; chances are, you can get back up and try it again. If you break your leg while skating, your friends will respect you for it. Every slam gets you tougher.
Bring your board everywhere.You never know when you'll get bored, and you never know when you'll see a good spot. Better safe then sorry.
Always have a friend ready to film you when you are going out to skate and try your hardest and if you fall get back up and try it again till you get you trick down.
If you know you can do the trick, do the trick.When you think to yourself "what if i fall off and hurt myself" or "what if i break my board". Well, chances are you won't hurt yourself and your board's gonna get wrecked (eventually),so get over it. Just think to your self "I can do this" and then just do it. And anyway, why be scared of pain? It only lasts for a few minutes, then it's all good again.
QuestionWhat are some recommended tricks to start out with?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThe first thing every beginner should learn is, without any doubt, the Ollie. Then you may want to try 180's, Shuv-Its, Pop Shuv-Its, Switch Ollie,or a Kickflip.Thanks!
QuestionI want to learn how to drop in, but I'm scared of the 6 footer. How can I get over my fear and build the skills?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerDropping in is definitely challenging at first, but once you commit, it becomes one of the easiest things you'll ever do. The best way to start is to get super comfortable with your board... let it become a part of you so that it feels like an extension of your body. Dropping in doesn't really take a lot of skill, but it does take a lot of bravery. Wear knee pads if you want, and COMMIT COMMIT COMMIT!Thanks!
QuestionHow do you deal with anger when you don't land a trick and just want to break your board?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerTake a two-minute breather; sit down and listen to music, or watch a YouTube video. Get skateboarding out of your mind for a short bit. If you distance yourself from it a little, and take some time to calm down, when you get back on your board a couple minutes later, chances are you'll be refreshed and skate better.Thanks!
QuestionIs it bad to get a board with no grip tape?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes, that's bad. You want to purchase grip tape with your deck or else your feet will have nothing to grip onto. A board without grip tape that has a waffle patterned top, such as a penny board will work, but be harder to learn on.Thanks!
QuestionHow can I keep my balance if I hit a rock while riding my skateboard?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerTo be completely honest, you really can't. If you get lucky, you will drag the rock and the wheel on the concrete. However, this isn't the best for your wheels. Basically, you just have to run out of it or tuck and roll.Thanks!
QuestionHow can I better understand skate tricks?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerWatch skate videos. YouTube has a bunch of instructional videos and pros skating. Watch them over and over and focus on the small details.Thanks!
QuestionIf I don’t have access to a skate park, what are good locations for skating?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou can skate on a cul-de-sac street that doesn't get much traffic, or you can skate in regular parks, and around retail spaces like supermarkets, malls, etc. Libraries often have rails/steps around the entrance too. Just look around for any signs that say "No skateboarding" before you skate there.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I overcome the fear of doing an ollie?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerOllie on grass first so you get the initial process down. When you move to concrete, put the back wheels in a crack so they'll hardly move. Once you've got that, move to stationary ollies, rolling, over obstacles etc.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I do the change while on a skateboard?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerDo you mean the sex change trick? Well, do the trick, then, when the board is in the air, you turn your shoulder the way you want to change. Get comfortable riding switch first because you might feel weird when you land.Thanks!
QuestionWill going to the gym boost my confidence?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerGoing to the gym regularly will make you stronger for sure. But the best thing for confidence is just knowing that you can do it. Go fast and commit.Thanks!

- Don't give up, ever.
- Be creative. There's no way to gap the grass? Put a flatbar over it. Cracks in the sidewalk that you can't skate over? Try using some sheets of wood. Can't grind the ledge over there? Get a corner piece of metal and wax it up.
- Don't be scared!
- Commit to the trick. Its just like dropping in for the first time, you might fall of the first few times but you will get it, and before you know it you're dropping the Monster Bowl and doing Darkslides.
- Learn new tricks. There's nothing better than learning, say, how to tre flip flat ground while still being able to tear it up at the 12 set down at the high school.
- Don't intentionally break decks. They cost at the very least for new ones, and why waste money like that?
- Don't be afraid of stairs. They're never as hard as they look.
- Security guards and personnel. They will get mad if you skate on their property/ the property they have been hired to guard, and might even call the cops.
- When the doctor says don't ride for a month and a half, that doesn't mean a month and a week.
