Skate or Die!

9 Aug

Super B skating the mean streets of Long Beach.

Last night we took Blake out for his first skateboard lesson, thanks to a kid-sized skateboard bargain at my client’s children’s consignment shop. In true Blake fashion, it took awhile for the excitement to get started …

Safety first!

We spent a good deal of time monitoring the board for safety …

Yep, still looks sturdy.

And later moved on to perfecting our stance …

Legs apart and knees bent for balance!

And eventually we even got on the board. This is the magic that ensued. :) xoxo

P.S. How dorky is it to wear a bicycle helmet while skateboarding? Or does it just make you more aero-dynamic? ;)
