    Everyone has to start somewhere. Skating is all about having fun and pushing your own abilities. Who cares what the others think. Focus on your skating and not them. Those who just sit and watch the whole time usually dont know how to skate anyways.

    Look at it like this...people may laugh now but when you become good they will want to be like you. The only way you will get good is to practice and keep skating.

    when I practice skateboarding, I just do the same thing over and over again, until I get it right. When I just started skateboarding, I would do an Ollie over and over until I got it right. even more complicated tricks like kick flips, I would just do it over and over and over.
