Does winter weather cramp your skateboarding style? KW has some ways for you to find your skate fix when the snow falls.

  • Play Tony Hawk's Underground (THUG). When it's cold and wet outside, take a seat on the couch and plug in THUG - the latest, and by far the greatest, skate video game from Tony Hawk. With Tony Hawk's Underground, you can choose your own skate adventure, invent your own tricks, and with a PS2 network adaptor, you can even put your own face into the game!

  • Snowskate - Don't wait for the temperature to rise or the snow to melt. Grab a snowskate. You can ride rails, pop ollies, or slide around the parking lot. All you need is snow.

  • Indoor Skatepark - Bring your skateboard indoors. Most indoor skateparks charge you money to skateboard, which totally bites, but it's better than trying to ollie in a foot of snow. To find an indoor skatepark near you, head on over to www.skateboard.com.

  • Skate Videos - Watch a skateboard video or DVD. It's a great way to see some tricks you haven't seen before and catch some wicked skateboard wipeouts.

  • Hit the Mall - Most shopping malls have great places to skateboard, like benches, covered parkades and stairs. If you spend too much time skating at the mall, you'll likely get hassled by the SSGs (Slobby Security Guards.) If that happens, take a break and scope out the stores for some new skate gear.

  • Tech Decks - Get your skatefix by picking up a set of Tech Deck handboards or fingerboards. Tech Deck's latest line of boards feature skate graphics from your favorite brands, trucks that spark and all the tools and hardware you need.

  • Move South - Convince your parents to quit their jobs and move south, so you can concentrate on your skateboarding career. If the 'rents say no the first time, throw a tantrum and tell them you'll start wetting the bed if you can't live somewhere that doesn't snow. It just might work. It's no surprise that some of the world's best skaters like Tony Hawk and Bob Burnquist come from southern climates. When it's warm outside, you can skate all day, everyday.

    How to you get your skateboard fix when there's snow on the ground or it's freezing outside? your winter weather skateboard ideas to Kidzworld.

    Cheer leading, I think, is not a sport. I mean the girls who are cheer leaders never go are the girls teams but never miss a team where there are boys. So if it was a sport then shouldn't they cheer for all the students who are play a certain game where cheer leading is needed/allowed? Maybe in some schools it is a sport but in most, it isn't. -_-'

    I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.

    The Cowboys have cut Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, from the team. Is this an expression of the conformity policy so deeply rooted in American athletics?
