You're feeling inspired and want to learn to park skate, but you've got no idea where to start!
We hear too many stories about new skaters who head to the skatepark and dive right in without any preparation... bail, and spook themselves right back out of the skatepark. We understand that would leave a bad taste in anyone's mouth and can often lead to local derby leagues banning skaters from participating in park skating.
This bums us out big time so we’ve compiled some helpful advice for park noobs to help ensure you have a positive skatepark experience and build a strong lasting relationship with the sport. If you have any fun tidbits for new skaters post them up in the comments and we'll get them added in.
