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.

    Cheer-leading is a sport it is not just for girls it basically gymnastics but in routines its a great way to feel better about yourself and you can learn all sorts of skills there but my tip is if you want to start cheer go to gymnastics first so you can get a bit of flexibility and work from there and if you want to do more advance things like tumbles then practice and being self taught is not a disadvantage its a bonus cheer is nothing like the movies (in some parts yes but not in the drama part its more like fitness than showing off it keeps you in good state in mind agility and visually try it ad see how you feel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) byeeeeeeeeeeeee
