What people would think...

I'm 16 and i really want to learn how to skateboard. Do u think i'm to old to learn? And others would just think i'm doin it to fit in and for the guys, but i'm not, i'm serious. My friends think i want to learn becuz i love sk8r guys, and i want them to like me. I can admit that's a very very small part of it, but mostly i just want to learn, it looks really fun and interesting, i know alot about it to. so please help, will i be able to w/out people thinking that i'm a poser? thanx

If your want to do somthing then go ahead and do it, because if you wait in 10 years you'll be asking yourself "why didn't I do this". Trust me go with the flow abd don't worry what other people say

Hey, girls just wanna have fun! Go down to the local board shop and see about some lessons. You'll pick up the basic skills more quickly and not learn bad habits. Let's face it, it's about having fun and being a part of a social/lifestyle group. Do it because you have an interest in it, not just as an excuse to meet the cute sk8r guys. That's why you need lessons. You'll need to show that you want to skate first and socialize later. Otherwise, you are a poser.

Re: What people would think...

Hey, I think it's great! We need more female skaters! I've been skateboarding since I was 11, now I am almsot 16, so it's been a little over 4 years. The key to skateboarding is have confidence, and persistence. Never give up. Once you have basic balance down, and keep it up for over 3 months, you'll have it. It took me a while to get going, but once I did, I couldn't stop, and I learn something every day. Don't be afraid to ask other skaters for help and tips, ect. And yes, guys will be all over you. They'll want to 'help' you, heh, heh--be careful.
