To learn to ride a skateboard you need to get used to it, stand so that was convenient. This can be done at home or outside – just put skate and stand on it, feel the Board, try to move your feet to balance, the control Board in place. Before you start to move, find out which foot you support. The simplest way is just to kick the ball, support the foot, which will make it easier, ie on a skateboard, she will stand behind. The majority of people support, she's snap foot – right.
Start to ride better in places where there is no cars and people, such as parks. In addition, for the first time it is better to choose a flat surface, no inclines and descents. Put your foot above the front wheels, and the second, supporting leg push off from the surface as soon as the Board started, place your foot on the skateboard. Try to ride the Board, fully standing on it while keeping balance. To skate were not broken up, supporting leg, move back and increase the pressure on it.
In skateboarding there are several ways to stop. The easiest to remove the support leg from a skateboarding and brake it on the ground. However, this method is suitable only for flat surfaces.
Another way is to brake with your heel. Press the heel of the supporting leg on the Board so that the front part of the skateboard up into the air. Strengthen the pressure on the heel, but do not forget about the front foot, it still has to remain on the Board.
Turns on the Board are sharp and smooth. To begin to learn to turn better with smooth turns, you need to push the leg and rotate the body in the direction you want. Remember, the harder you make the heel the greater the angle of rotation. It is best to train such turns can go around any object.
Sharp turns should be made by balancing on the rear wheels. Put a support leg on the tail of the skateboard, and the front – on the nose, while maintaining its position relative to the Board. Transfer most of the weight of the body on the supporting leg at a time swing the nose of the Board in different directions. Turn around on the skateboard so that the feet are reversed. Learn to do it on the spot, shifting the body weight at the time of reversal. When driving the rotations are performed first in one direction and then in another.
Once you have mastered skating in a straight line on a skateboard. You can move on to learning tricks. The first of them must be a trick Ollie (Ollie). Despite its simplicity, it is the basis of most tricks performed by skateboarders. Ollie is jumping on a skateboard.
The formulation of the feet of all riders when performing Ollie is different, someone puts legs wide, someone on the contrary closer to each other, it is important that you feel comfortable. So, lead from the front, put the leg in the middle of the deck or move to the front bolts, and snap the foot on the tail. Overclocking. The knees should be slightly bent. Support leg abruptly hit on the tail of the Board will be something like a click, and immediately begin to push off the ground together with the Board. It is a kind of jump on one leg. The leading leg moves the skin up and down. It turns out that the foot of the front leg as if clinging to the skin and pull the whole Board up and latest up in the air. Skaters call this movement "the hood". It's better to do the curved inside foot leading foot. Upon landing the feet of both legs is better to put on or near bolt, then the probability to hurt yourself or to break a Board be greatly reduced. Also do not forget about the center of gravity during flight is not desirable nor to lean back or fall forward. Despite its simplicity the first time Ollie probably did not happen is the rider. The key to high performance Olli – long workout.
