In this video we're learning the skateboarding basics. I watched a series of videos by Braille Skateboarding to get an idea of what to practice on the first day. The basic skateboard skills that we practiced are pushing, pivoting and kick turns. We also attempted skating down some mellow banks and set a goal to skateboard over a mellow roll. The biggest difference I found between skateboarding and snowboarding is you're continuously pivoting and moving your feet in skateboarding. The other challenge is how quickly you have to adjust your balance over the skateboard. We also met a young skater in the park that gave us a few tips and showed us a few tricks! Check back for more learning to skate episodes, as we attempt to progress our skateboard skills! Thanks for watching!
