Simon's Skate Tips - I Broke My Arm Doing A 180

By: Simon

So ya love skateboarding, but still haven't mastered the ollie? Having problems landing your kickflip? Why not and he'll get an answer for you.

Hey Simon,
I broke my arm while trying a 180 flip. It's the second time I broke my arm this year and now my mom says I'm not allowed to skate any more. What should I do?

Hey sk8guy,
The first thing you should do is think about how you managed to break your arm twice in just a few months. Are you wearing proper protective gear, like elbow pads and a helmet? Do you have a quality skateboard with properly adjusted wheels and bearings - or are you riding a piece of crap made out of plastic that you bought at the corner store for twenty bucks? Do you know your limitations when you're skateboarding - or are you trying to pull off 15-foot railslides when you still haven't learned how to ollie? Not wearing protective gear, riding a cheap, crappy skateboard and doing tricks that are far beyond your ability are all ways you get hurt while skateboarding.

Your mom doesn't want you to skate anymore because she doesn't like seeing you get hurt and she doesn't want to keep paying expensive medical bills. Skateboarding is safer than most other sports so if you're riding properly you should be able to avoid serious injuries. Tell your mom you'll wear proper gear and ride within your limits and she may give you a second chance. Also, have you thought about going to skateboard camp? It'll improve your skills and give your mom peace of mind that you're at least learning things the right way.

Do you need some cool skateboarding tips?, to Simon. He might not no everything, but he's been skating for a while and certainly knows more than your Mom does. Remember: never push mongo, and always wear a helmet.

    Of course we can! It's true that we're a little less strong physically, but we can. "Can't" means just that, we can't. And that's wrong. It's true we have to deal with all that physical pain (I can whine about it for agesss) and mental pain too. And that some of us cry easily. But that's because we feel pain! So although we are less strong physically as I said earlier, girls can also think up ways to surprise someone in a fight. And that's a good thing to do to someone who laughs at a girl and says they cant fight.

    Cheer-leading is a sport - most people think that it is not - but it is Yes it looks like they are just cheering on the football players - but their routines and being able to hold up girls over their head takes strength, and they work really hard to make everything look good.

    I liked cheering for the underdog, so I've always cheered for the Cavs. I'd like to see how this year's line-up goes, though our past best point guard left for the Celtics.  :/
