Skateboard Chick

Athletes come in all shapes and sizes. Being an athlete isn't limited to playing a sport that ends in the world ball. There are dancers, golfers, cheerleaders, gymnasts, swimmers, runners and thrill seekers, all deserving the title athlete.

As you may have picked up my subtle hints once or twice, I love all sports. As much as I love watching sports, and let's face it, the way I watch football could easily be considered an athletic event, I love playing sports even more. Like most athletes, I'll play anything, just give me the right equipment and I'll practice until I have it mastered. 

One sport I am dying to learn how to do is skateboarding. Just half an hour of skateboarding actually burns 150 calories. And, in my opinion, a girl on a skateboard takes coolness to a whole new level! She seems like a low maintenance chick with a smile on her face, the sunshine in her hair and not a care or stress in the world.









Even though I don't live near a beach boardwalk, I think my neighborhood would be the next best place to learn to skateboard. With all of the brightly painted murals and art around every corner, a skateboard would be the perfect way to explore and play tourist in my own back yard. I know exactly what board I would choose too... this one from Penny Skateboards Online. Is that not the prettiest skateboard you've ever seen?





Penny Skateboards is a company dedicated to building each board with the highest quality raw materials and fanatical attention to detail. Penny Skateboards are designed and built to look good, perform well, and exceed all your expectations. And boy do they look good! Penny skateboards offers a full range of bright colors, pastel prints and cool patterns to fit anyone's style and personality. Gone are the days of skateboards made just for dudes, and here are the days of pretty pastels, bold floral prints and bright florescents.





So I want to know, are any of y'all skateboarders? What pointers would you give me for learning to skateboard for the first time?

....... And who knows, maybe there will be a surprise giveaway on Tuesday for all of y'all who want to free your inner skateboard chick. But I guess you'll just have to wait until Tuesday, won't you? ........

  1. Skateboarding is one thing I have no desire to do...mostly because I don't think it would be possible to wear enough safety gear for me! :P When I was a kid, I ended up in the emergency room to get stitches after falling off a scooter (the skateboards with handles they had?) and Angel has a 4 inch long scar on his arm from the skateboard accident that convinced him to stop. :P They aren't for the clumsy!

  2. I haven't ever skateboarded, but I loved the movie Lords of Dogtown. Also, I could get obsessed with that customization option. SO MANY colors!

  3. I've always wanted to be able to skateboard. It terrifies me, the idea of not really being in control. But I figure if I can learn to snowboard, I should be able to learn to at least move a few feet on a skateboard.

    Truth: A majority of my motivation to learn to skateboard is the coolness factor. Pretty sure dudes find chicks on boards attractive.

  6. Me too! I used to skateboard all the time when I was younger and as I graduated it just kind of fell away. I still enjoy long boarding though!

  7. I soooooo wanted to be a skater girl in junior high and high school. I lived on a hill on a busy street. So instead I just shopped at PacSun. It was a better choice for me.

  8. I have actually never been on a skateboard but if I was to start I would definitely pick one of the cute options above!

  9. Wow, I'm surprised at how many girls have never tried to skateboard before. Get out there ladies!

    I skate a long board, I just make sure I always have on jeans and closed toed shoes when I do.
    Also, skip the hills for a while, keep it to the flat areas until you get the hang of it.

    I've seen Penny boards before but haven't tried them yet, they're so little and cute! lol

  10. Feel like I am cheating on your link up today but I do have Hockey Stuff at the end and that counts right??? I know you are probably thinking HOCKEY, that doesn't count at all. Love the pretty skateboards though.

  11. I used to think I could skateboard when I'd take my brother's but it just involved going down the slightest decline in the sidewalk and doing it over and over. And yes, I still fell.

  12. Maybe I can teach my foster baby to ride one (is that what you call it?), we all know bulldogs and skateboards are a killer combo, and he would probably love it, since he is a bit lazzy.

  15. This reminds me of my old wanna-be days back when Avril Lavinge was cool. Or so I thought. I had vans, dc's and all, but never touched a board. Maybe if these prettiest existed I would have.

  16. I think I would fall off a skateboard if I try doing it.

  17. I have tried to learn how to skateboard, my lack of balance has prevented me from learning. For those cute skateboards though I would give it a try again!

  18. I’ve always wanted to learn how to skateboard and surf. I tried both once and kind of got hurt bad with each and never got back on the horse. Those skateboards are super pretty!!

  19. I saw a chick with a skateboard at the airport this week and I thought to myself, "man. she must be cool." If I had enough coordination to walk straight, I just might think about adding in a skateboard! haha

  20. I love the idea of skateboarding! I used to do it when I was growing up, on a little board that my dad made for all of us kids.. I am so terrible at it, though.. I have like, zero sense of balance at all, so I'd just fall over if I tried it. Still sounds kind of fun, though!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have never been on a skateboard because my balance sucks and I would end up on the gound in pain

  22. Can't skateboard to save my life but these are awesome. The colors definitely grab your attention without being obnoxious. You'd be adorable on a skateboard!

  23. I tried to learn to skateboard when I was like 13 and skateboarding was the super cool thing to do. I learned pretty quickly that I should stick to things attached to my feet or that have a handle.

  24. I just stumbled upon your blog by accident, and in the words of Britney Spears during her XFactor days, "you've turned me into a fan."

  25. I tried and failed to learn to skateboard once!

  26. My tip is to avoid hills! It is really hard to stop. Trust me, it ended with me flying through the air landing about 5 feet away from the board. :)

  27. OH those boards look AWESOME! There is nothing more fun than rolling down the boardwalk! I love roller skating but I've tried skateboarding and I totally get why it's so popular!
