Skateboarding was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life, and the most frustrating. But if you can get through the first part of it and get to the point where you start to get kind of good, then it can be great. It calms you when you're angry. It makes you feel great when you're just looking for some fun. You can hang out with friends while you do it. You can express yourself. You become independent. It's hard to explain. I tried snowboarding once for a day and it was a little fun but I started to get bored with it after a while. I don't like the idea of something strapped to my feet. It makes it too easy to control and too hard to control at the same time.
