How to skateboard

Some of us should post lessons on how to skateboard because there is none on this site (i think). People could teach others by pictures or videos step by step on how to skateboard. Like tips and tricks. Also we could start at like basics like how to turn and stop. Then have some tricks like how to ollie and kickflip.

Firstly you have just bought your first skateboard and you're ready to figure the thing out. By this time, you should be familiar with all of the pieces of a skate setup(trucks, wheel, bearings and deck) and the other gear that will keep you safe while riding(pads, helmet and proper clothes).
Ready to ride? Let's take a look at some of the basics.

skateboarding isnt something you can just learn through instructables. you are going to need some one who skateboards to teach you in person.

any1 know how to do a helicopter??????? i need help w/ that
I've skated for about three and a half years, and I know how to skate pools, ditches, and halfpipes pretty well, and I know some free-style tricks and the simple flips. If I can come up with a way to teach pumping and carving over the internet, I'll help out. Plus I know a little about making decks and graphics, maintenance, and good equipment reccommendations.
Hi all. I have a question for all of you. Ok I'm now in my thirties, almost near the end of them, but am in relatively good shape still, don't look as old as I am they say. I skated a bit younger, never very good. Now my 11 yr old son skates pretty fine for his age, and I've been craving to get back into it. Mainly at an indoor skate park, and what i really want to do is the bowl. Nothing outrageous, but just like surfing as a kid (not very good either, too far from the coast, but vaguely ok). With all of the protections in place, namely helmet and wrist guards (I'm a musician and need my hands) does this sound crazy to try skating again as an adult?? And no longer 20 something?? Any anecdotes would be appreciated, though I'm going to do it anyway cheers

I just turned 46 last week and want the same. Never skated as a kid though. Been skating with my 7 year old son for about 6 months at parks now - I learn at about 1/3 his speed:) I'm not a 'couch potato' but not in really great shape either. Just learned to drop in on miniramps a couple of weeks ago - the bowl is next! Take it at your pace and don't let your kid pick on you:)

My dad had skateboarding down for a while and he was in his forties!
That'd be kinda cool.

I tried to skateboard, but I'm just atrocious. This was all about five or six years ago though. I tried the other night and forget trying to ollie, I can barely ride the thing. I'm just missing balance skillz.
