yea so ah.... i skatebosrd and i think it helps. first of all, it gives u better balance in general, but esp on rails, i learned to grind way quicker than my brothers who don't skate. second, i think the whole mentallity helps, because it gives you determination to land a trick and such. yea, thats about all i can think of. skateboardnig is too hard........ but its still fun.
You know something that would really make me applaud? A guy gets stuck in quicksand, then sinks, then suddenly comes shooting out, riding on water skis. How do they do that?
