I'm 29. When I was younger all I used to do was Surf, skate and play baseball. Of the 3 I still surf ... A lot. A couple friends and I have started skating more, mostly in the work parking lot. I worked up the courage to go to a skatepark (early in the morning to escape judgment) this is what I (re)learned.

    Like all things once you nail these, you can build off and be confident in difficult tricks. Also I have a sore foot and bruised pride reminding me afterwards.
  8. Coping on bowls is intimidating.
