Whee! I recently purchased a skateboard!
I have to confess, I hadn’t skated since before my teens and had never actually owned my own skateboard, but for some reason, it really took my fancy as a way to get exercise without having to rely on anyone else and without having to pay lots of money. I’m sure the recent warm, sunny weather has also played a part in creating idyllic images of whizzing about in the sunshine. :)
I’ve taken it for a couple of spins so far, and only fallen off once, but then I’ve not really tried doing anything remotely ambitious (or too fast).
There are lots of skateparks and ramps around the area, but for now I will be concentrating on going in a straight line without dying.
The board is made up of bits by British skateboard company, Enuff, with a chocolate-coloured 7.75″ deck and 52mm wheels. (The mixed measurement styles annoy me but that’s just the way they do these things.)
