I went out with Arbor Girl friends last Sunday. After hitting a few parks – which I call home – we went to a hill. They called it a hill – mountain is what I’d call it. I had the borrowed gloves on and a loaner down hill skateboard by my side – but the idea of trying on a “hill” with a guardrail and cacti to land in – NO NO!
I gotta keep it fun – so I’m going to try sliding on flat land. I know that’s not the end goal – I want to celebrate the process and work my way up the hill. I’m totally intrigued by the gloves but it’s all so new & different from how I’m used to skating.
So here’s a big shout out to all my friends who are already going down hill – “masters of squat” is what they are. And a reminder that your real friends will encourage you to try new things – not force you!
Encouragement is stylish on & off the board – peer pressure and bullying are never stylish. So grateful to have supportive friends that will help me learn downhill skateboarding “safely” – like is there even such a thing as downhill skateboarding “safely”? Okay help me learn downhill skateboarding with confidence!
