It have gone a while since I got my longboard now. About three months I think.
In general I’m very happy with how well it has gone.
Haven’t really hurt myself at all, except some really minor things. Like fallen off and had a limb for a couple of days or had a sore ass for a few days. A large part of why is partly that I always wear helmet plus set of protective gear and that I in general have been very careful about always balancing pushing myself and always being in control.
Also I’m very happy about how fast I’ve gotten to where I am.
The most impactful thing on my skills have been to skate to work any day where it is doable. I just skate where it is fun, take public transport where it is the most convenient and walk the rest. I also go for rides during weekends and such when it is weather for it. But that isn’t as often as I’d like at this time of year.
It is so much fun to have a mode of transportation where I kind of do it mostly because I think it is a fun thing to do and not for the convenience.
