Throwing myself into the deep end, that's how I feel right now.
Over the past couple of months i've been thinking to myself how fun it would be to start riding a skateboard, the main drive of this idea being my commute to work that has about 20 minutes of walking every day, so why not try an alternate means of transport?
Therefore I went down to my local store and picked up a skateboard and some shoes on Saturday.
Spending a bit of time on the board and starting getting used to it, i've already fallen a couple of times as to be expected. This is the first time i've ever tried skateboarding.
I have to admit, i'm not sure how i'm going to do, it still feels really sketchy when I get on the board. It's freaking me out a bit. Will I be able to get the knack of it?
I'm hoping that if I take it to work with me every day and just keep at it, I will start to feel better and better and gain confidence. I'll tentatively say that i'll post an update in 1 month.
