1Hey Coach,
I need major help with my skateboarding! I can't stay on the board for more than thirty seconds. I wipe out when I just stand on it. Is my board haunted?

Hey toolbabe

Your skateboard could very well be haunted by a ghost. It could even be the same ghost that causes the LA Clippers to miss most of their shots and the Detroit Tigers to strikeout all the time. But before you embarrass yourself by asking the dude at your local skateshop to perform an exorcism on your board, you should try skating more often or even consider taking some skateboard lessons.

You won't become the next Tony Hawk or Vanessa Torres overnight. Learning to balance and become comfortable on your skateboard can take a lot of practice and some people take longer to pick it up than others. Skateboard every day and watch what other skaters do. Don't be afraid to ask the peeps at the skatepark or your other favorite skate hangouts for some advice. The more you skate, the fewer times you'll be knocked on your butt by those nasty skateboard ghosts. Oh yeah, and always wear a helmet, dude.

Do you need tips or advice on 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.

    • For sure. Skateboards are fun and they don't tell you what to do.
    • No way. Skateboards are cool but they don't do your laundry.

    Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.
