Instructables
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!

Good luck.
(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.

nice vans :D
One year later, i CAN ollie. : )
Aren't you dead?
No, i dissolved into flakes.
true, true. I found that part kind of stupid though, i though it would have been an epic last battle to the death.
Yea, why didn't i fall over? and [ in the book ] was not the last duel in the Great Hall? 
I am goofy too. But just a beginner. Could you tell me if i could do tricks with a skateboard which has only a tail(no NOSE)?
You probably can't do things like nollies, but you should be able to do other tricks.
is goofy your right foot on the board and your left foot pushing off? i forgot :/ if so im goofy :P

I have two tips for you:
1. Make sure your camera person doesn't talk, it's annoying and disruptive.
2. Try using a boom mic/clip on mic for when you're talking because when you turn away/when the board moves, you can't hear what you're saying.

dude i have being tryin for years, i cannot do an ollie. i always do it right but all that happens is when i slide up after pushing down the end the back just stays on the gound
 do you jump as you do it?
Your instructions are helpful with the footing and all but...i still can't ollie.

are the skateboard decks supposed to tilt on the trucks?
yes if you want the slacker the kingpin is(the large nut in the middle of the trucks) the more sharper you can turn you can adjust this by tightening the kingpin with a 14mm spanner or socket
You have how to look like a skateboarder, but don't know the answer to this question. Here's a question for you. Kids what do you call someone with skateboarding clothes, shoes hats, and anything else, that can't skate. A POSER!
i call them dudemen...........
I can skate kinda......Im workin on a few tricks right now. besides, that post is 6 months old
It was a joke. Just busting your chops.
thanx for the advc but my skateboard isn't worth it.(I guess)
