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.
