Teaching Others How to Skateboard

This Friday, the 13th, I helped my friend choose a complete at a store in a mall.

He chose an Almost (Almost is a skateboard brand) complete for about 110 bucks. When I got back to his house, he started skating and tried to do a few basic tricks. 

Being a good friend, I taught him how to ride, ollie, shoveit, and the basic mechanics of the skateboard. 

We skated at some basketball courts near his house for a few hours, then went home and chilled at the Xbox. It was a fun time!

  9. Sounds like a good time, too bad the only moves I know how to do are the bail and the faceplant. :P Oh how I wish I had any resemblance of balance.
