I’ve watched other people skateboard through all walks of life and I’ve always wanted to try it. But learning to skateboard always seemed like such a giant hill that was unclimbable. Unlike a bike or a scooter, which seems easy thinking about it now, there are no handles or brakes to grab onto or push when I am worried that I may fall. Finally I decided that enough was enough and I was going to ride my skateboard no matter what. Even if I have to fall hundreds of times to do it. Although some might think that an electric scooter would be harder to learn to ride if you didn’t know how to ride a normal skateboard, it was all I had at that moment. I psyched myself up and grabbed my board and headed down to the park. It was a long day, to say the least. I started out by just standing on the board and getting used to the feeling of it underneath my feet. Once I felt comfortable with that I started slowly, honestly I was barely moving at all at this point. I sped up more and more, and received a couple bumps and bruises along the way, until I was going as fast as the board allowed. I realized that I was actually riding my skateboard! I wasn’t just learning or taking it slow anymore, I was actually riding it! I was on top of the world at that moment, the feeling was indescribable. Now I can not only ride a bike and a scooter, but a skateboard too.
