Yesterday I had my first ever skateboarding lesson and it went pretty well, if I may say so myself. It's a little embarrassing learning to skateboard when you're 19 and just a little poorly balanced...I feel sort of like a middle-aged man learning to ride a bike. I am now able to cruise on the board and avoid minor directly approaching obstacles, although when it comes to stopping I must either bail the board, grab something or end up on my ass. This still makes me feel pretty cool, even if I am shocking.

It doesn't help that all the while I'm trying to travel a few meters without ending up ass over head the boys are flipping their board around like it's part of their anatomy.
