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.

    I'm in marching band, and I don't consider it a sport.Yes, I'll admit that marching band can be physically demanding, but it isn't a sport. Marching band is nothing like soccer, lacrosse, rugby, tennis, boxing, etc. Comparing marching band to a sport like rubgy, hockey, cross country, or whatever is just... kind of ridiculous.You can argue that it does require some physical-ness, which it does. But it's just walking in tempo. It does involve some endurance to stand out in the sun and play an instrument for a while, but doing so isn't really that hard.
