Usually when people go to the beach they get a bunch of friends together and start a pick up game at the closest beach. For those people with a small amount of friends a good way to play football at the beach is to play catch in the water, when you catch the ball find the largest wave and plow into it. Test yourself by hitting the biggest wave you can find, and see if you can stay standing after contact. Try throwing a couple diving catches to your friends. http://www.wilson.com/en-us/football/footballs/
Some people like to make little balloons that can be thrown really far but its better to sneak up behind someone and lay the nuke of water balloons on people. These balloons can get really big, like really big. If you do it right it will be very beautiful. The best way to make these is to buy the biggest ones you can find, but to make them go above and beyond their limit you must stretch the balloon before you put water into it, and when you fill them up u must do it in a giant bucket of water. Gravity is usually what causes the balloons to pop while being filled, so the water lessens the effect of the water being pulled by gravity. Check this out, give it a try and give me some feedback http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lom70GtwtEU.
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.
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.
On hot summer days everyone is looking for a fun and exciting way to cool off, I find the best way is water balloon fights. Where I live my friends and I make the local skatepark a very dangerous battle zone. The slingshot takes two bungie cords and a piece of material that will hold a water balloon, and won’t break if stretched. Have two people pulling the two bungie cords, and one person pulling the water balloon back as far as you want to shoot, then aim for the unexpecting bikers riding by, release and watch the biker take a fat water balloon to the face. Just be careful the moving target don’t see you, if they do, pick up the skateboard and leave. They tend to get kinda mad after getting ahnialated by a blazing ball of water. Just try not to hit the people that look like they would get butthurt and call the cops. Although the slingshot may bring some trouble to you, the fun part is watching them blame random people in the skatepark. If your going to use the slingshot, use it in an area were you can hide the contraption and blend in with a crowd, so they don’t realize it was you that drenched them with water. Happy Valentines day, and have fun launching water balloons into your valentine’s face. Send me some videos of you and your friends launching water balloons at people’s faces.
P.S. Please don’t launch tomatoes, cabbage, apples, bananas, carrots, or eggs its gross!
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.
