I haven't skated in maybe 15 years, and even then I could barely stand up on a skateboard. I got the idea in my head recently that I wanted to learn to do it. No tricks or anything; just to ride a skateboard. Tabitha also seems pretty interested in learning so if I can stand up on one then it might encourage her to stick it out a bit.
Charlie from work was kind enough to lend me this awesome pizza skateboard which has pizza trucks and pizza wheels and is basically me in skateboard form. I had a lot of fun riding this morning, and didn't hurt myself. Got pretty comfortable carving and kicking turns and riding over this sweet marijuana leaf at our local skatepark.
