Skateboarding is the greatest thing in the world. For many of us, it’s all we know. It’s what our entire lives revolve around day and night. And for many others, it’s a hobby and something you like to do in your spare time. Either way we can all agree that skateboarding is fun. And that is why I am writing this post, to remind you to keep the fun in skateboarding.
I know the world of skateboarding has gone to ridiculous death-defying heights but with all honesty, it’s not always about doing the gnarliest trick or one upping the other guy. To tell you the truth, stressing yourself to hop onto that 20 stair rail doesn’t sound like much fun at all. Seriously, don’t forget why you started skateboarding in the first place. Go out and cruise the streets and just have fun. Carve that pool or skate the little flatbar at the local park. Just do what you feel is fun and stop worrying about what everyone else thinks.
We all have our preferences when it comes to skateboarding obstacles. Most importantly, just make sure to always keep it fun and cherish it while you can. Your skateboard will never forget you if you don’t forget it. It will always be there for you when times are harsh. So pick up that board go outside and push like your life depends on it. Feel the breeze brush against your face as you glide through the pavement. Absorb the energy and good vibes that come from riding your board. Pop those ollies and grind those curbs. This is what skateboarding is truly about. It’s about getting away and having fun. Pushing the limits may be part of that fun for some but the greatest enjoyment comes from skateboarding, period!
