Snowboarding is the best sport ever. If you have never been snowboarding, then put it on your to do list. At first it can be really hard, and will work you very hard. If a bruised tailbone isn’t something you would sacrifice then take up a different sport. A bruised tailbone and a face full of snow is about the most common thing in snowboarding. Here is a link that will save you a lot of pain, watch, listen, and learn.
Some people say skateboarding in park is the only way to skateboard, but there is another style that is just as fun. Downhill skateboarding is a very fun, and never gets boring. Finding new hills with your friends and flying down them is just as fun as any way of skateboarding.

Go out and try skating like this, send me some videos of people falling on their face!
Skateboarding is the cure to all boredom. Starting out may be hard, but once you get the hang of it, you will have the most fun you have ever had in life. It is used as a way to vent out the stress of life. It is a very good way to relax and relieve yourself of the burdens of school or work. Skateboarding should not be used as a way to “look cool”, if that’s you, and you are reading this, stop being a poser. If your going to hold a skateboard, ride it, don’t just try and look like a skater. For all the stupid posers out there, go skate! If you aren’t very good at skateboarding go to your local skate park, and start skating. Some people get to a park and just wait for someone to invite them to start skating, you just have to put the board on the floor and push. Don’t let any one push you around in a skate park, you have just as much of the right to be there as they do. Alot of people would rather skateboard the street style, but to me ramps is the best part. I’m not saying its better, but I think it is alot more fun. Try learning some stalls first, then start going onto the ramp at an angle and grind the new stalls. Once you get used to riding the ramps, try all your new tricks going twice as fast. The faster the tricks are, the more fun it will be. If you are traveling looking for good skate parks, my favorite park is Skater’s Point located on the beach of beautiful Santa Barbara. Give me some feedback, I want to know your favorite skate park and your favorite trick, Street style and ramps.
P.S. Tofu is nasty, Tuna is better, but Nutella is the best.
My brother and I used to go sand boarding in the dunes or down sand hills at the beach. Start by taking the trucks off your skateboard, set the board at the top of the hill sort of on the down hill section of the hill, take a few steps back, and run, jump on the board. Be careful, you might fall forward if your not leaning far enough back. Also clear away all the rocks and anything that will give a good bruise or cut, think of it as a badge. Getting a face full of sand isn’t the best part, but if you get it on camera it will make you laugh pretty hard. If you want to make it even more fun just set up some bumps and jumps to see how good you can get. To challenge yourself, try jumping onto the board backwards and ride switch. It makes a good remembering of snowboard season, and keeps your balance from getting rusty.
