If you want to skip the introduction and want to know the important skip until next bold
Hello everyone, I’ve been reading and watching several videos about the mechanics behind all of this but have found an obstacle, this will be a weird discussion.
I have little to no experience with long boards, I was really small when my father tried to make me follow his youth passion, I know how to stay stable and do some simple turns but that is almost nothing. On top of it, I am currently doing an exchange student program, I am from Portugal but decided to come to the US for a full year. I’ve got 7 months and found this to be a good opportunity for me to expand my experiences and knowledge even further while at the same time giving me the freedom I wanted, being able to go somewhere without asking for permission from my host parents. I almost know enough about the mechanics to start putting up my first build.
Usually each year I would take on a new challenge and do it with someone different, medieval weapons, build computers, do rc cars and boats, but all of this with the tools I’d acquired over time. I know my host family has some basic tools but I am pretty sure there is nothing besides household related tools.
Do you think I should keep investing energy into something that I barely have experience with, almost no tools to work with and no support from anyone else?
For those who skipped: I have almost no knowledge on how to ride a skateboard. Found it interesting and a fun challenge at the same time being useful for me. Almost don’t have access to tools and help. Do you think, based on your experiences, is it worth to take this on in the situation I am?
Thanks for the amazing articles I’ve been reading and for making this forum an healthy place to learn.
