Introduction: How to Skateboard: Lesson 2!
Sorry this to so long to put up guys, i kind of just didn't get around to it.
But it is now here!!!!
Ok so here is How to Skateboard: Lesson 2
This is the more detailed better version. Because i made a few mistakes in the first one
please ask questions if you get confused, i will be happy to help!
(and wear or don't wear safety gear at your own risk)
Hope you enjoy!
This instructable will teach you (hopefully) how to do the basics like turning and also how to ollie. Now when you watch this video you probably wont get it the fist time so the best thing to do is to practice.
Step 1: Starting Out Standing
Get the gear, then prepare yourself.
First of all you need to be able to balance a little and have a medium tolerance for pain.
(If you fall it will hurt)
Also you will need a pretty good skateboard and a helmet.
(You should always wear safety gear!!!)
Ok so to start out you will want to figure out if you are goofy or regular. Ya those are the two foot positions
NOTE: i am goofy.
Ok so pictures 1-3 is how to stand
Pictures 4-6 is how NOT TO STAND!
Step 2: Pushing Off
So here is how to push off. In the first How to Skateboard i did this wrong.
You need to push correctly, the correct way is like picture 1. (this is goofy push off)
Picture two is a close up of pushing goofy.
picture 3 is how to push off regular.
(Picture 4)THIS IS THE WRONG WAY OF PUSHING!!!! THIS IS CALLED MONGO. DON'T DO IT UNLESS IT FEELS COMFORTABLE.
READ IMAGE NOTES!!!!
Very good if you found this.
2. Go to the board of an orange, of someone you know, in his name is a Miko.
Step 3: Starting, Stopping, and the Ollie!
Here is how to stop, start, and ollie.
To start off you want to push off (start pushing goofy or regular, which ever you are)
Then go onto a flat area to start ollieing. You are going to want to crouch down or bend your knees a little. Then put your foot close to the end of your board and push the back down hard. Then bring your front foot up and level the board out. (check the video out for better details on how to ollie)
So from there you will want to POP the board up and then level it out with your feet. then come back down flat.
To stop you need to lean your weight back until the tail of your board touches the ground. Then slide on the tail until you come to a stop. You can also just jump off your board.
For the ollie you will want to bend your knees and then get into the right position. (back foot near the back and front foot behind the bolts) then you want to push down really hard with your back tail and then jump up with the board as you then slide your front foot up to the nose of the board.
Just keep trying and you will get it!
Step 4: Final Steps to Becoming a PRO!
Try all these things out, and hopefully after a while you will learn how to skate, or become a better skater.
