1 Hey Coach,
I was 50-50ing across my rail when my board slipped out from behind me. I fell down and snapped my arm. I broke two bones in my arm and messed up my wrist. It really blows cuz now I can't skate for six weeks. What should I do?

Hey skateguything,
Sorry to hear about your painful confrontation with the pavement. The first thing you need to do is go buy some wrist and elbow pads, so your next wipeout isn't so painful. Then go out and rent or buy Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 and a bunch of skateboard videos. Playing skateboard games and watching skater videos isn't the same as riding your skateboard but it'll help feed your skater fix while your arm recovers.

In the meantime, milk your injury for all its worth. Ask girls to sign your cast and tell them how you, "snapped your arm while riding a twenty-foot rail." Some girls may even offer to help you carry your books to class. Lots of chicks go crazy for that kinda stuff. This is also a good time to hit your parents up for a new pair of Vans or some other cool skate gear you've been asking for. The 'rents may feel sorry for you and want to cheer you up when they see you moping around the house with a broken arm.

1Hey Coach,
What's the record for the longest manual on a skateboard - preferably a regular and not a nose? I'm trying to beat it myself.

Hey skriblez2k2,
There is no official world record for the longest manual (that means travelling along on a skateboard while balancing on the two rear wheels - also known as a wheelie) because skaters have never bothered to keep track of how far they've gone. I've seen videos where skaters have travelled two or three-hundred feet on the back two wheels of a skateboard. Good riders can keep going as long as they're travelling on a downward slope to give them momentum. So, if your best manual isn't a few hundred feet, you still have a ways to go before you have the record.

Do you have a question on sports, P.E. class, rules to sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.
