 :) Wayto go Keep it up
 the learning curve can be a little crappy. Once you get the basic balance and where you like your feet to be. The basic tricks will come with practice. The harder tricks are all about balls.
Worst thing I did was quit skating when I was younger. I think I was 9 when I started and quit when I was 18. I'm 36 now I've been rippin it now for 7 years. I love it more now! I built a ramp it the garage And Im also on the skatepark comity. We should have a killer skatepark by the end of summer here in Port Colborne. Ontario. If your ever around here your more then welcome to skate my ramp or my buddies ramp.

most of all enjoy it and if you like throwing yoyos its the same kind of learning. You try and try and try then you land the trick. then do it again and again.

Suicide isn't funny...But, if you were going to kill yourself, and really want to freak people out, you could glue your hands to your head, and then hang yourself with piano wire, that way when they find your body, it'll look like you ripped your own head

Definatley gonna need a pair like was said, I use to skate but,i long board now. From what I experienced, learn to get up. Foot placement is huge! Watch videos of skaters and watch their feet

wow that's a steal for a complete. Never heard of those trucks before though. Pretty good deal, especially for someone that's new to skating.

Main thing is just to have fun. Don't skate to get sponsored or famous or anything like that.  Skate because you love it and you'll go much further.

I'm recently getting back into skating after having to stop from an injury. Looks like my skating "career" is really starting to take off now.
