How to skateboard

Skateboarding can be tricky at first if you've never ridden any kind of board.

Here's a basic guide to get started riding your new board:

  1. Find a smooth, flat surface to practice on, such as a skate park or a flat parking lot. Avoid rough or uneven surfaces, as they can make it harder to balance and control your skateboard.

  2. Turn your front foot to point forwards and use your back foot to push off the ground and get the skateboard moving. Keep your front knee bent so the board doesn't shoot behind you, and then put your back foot back on the board and turn your feet sideways as you glide along.

  3. Stand on the skateboard with your feet shoulder-width apart over the bolts and your weight evenly distributed between your two feet.

  4. Bend your knees slightly. This will help you maintain your balance and control while you're riding.

  5. To turn, simply shift your weight to your toes or heels in the direction you want to go. You can also use your back foot to tip up the front of the skateboard in the direction you want to go. This is called a tic-tac.

  6. To stop, bend your knees and use your back foot to drag on the ground and bring the skateboard to a stop.

With a little bit of practice, you'll be skating like a pro in no time.
