Snowskates are awesome, I also do that in the winter, no snow here in Massachusetts yet though.

I consider my skateboard a valid form of transportation. I just started a few weeks ago, so all I can really do is a kickflip, and an extremely well executed faceplant.

I actually used to skateboard alot ~4 years ago, and also a liiittle bit of snowboard. I sucked at both things though, because I was(still am) a sissie. I started snowskate when it first came out, had aloooot of fun in my yard, but I stopped snowskate when I stopped skateboarding.

I stopped becuase I just got bored of it, didnt get better and I discovered computer games sad.gif The next four years of my life went right down the toilet.

But now I REALLY wanna start snowskating again. Its cheap, fun, not that difficult and you dont get hurt much compared to skateboard and snowboard. Cant wait for the snow. The snow is late this year >_<

Think I'm gonna try to make a little snowskate movie aswell smile.gif

Urg, the only time I did ski was on a classtrip.
Man I sucked so much biggrin.gif
You could think I was a stuntman... One time even a teacher thought "Oh, now its over" becuase I crashed directly and there was a big wave of snow biggrin.gif (Luckily the woman ahead me, got out of the way early enough, else she wouldnt have been at good health)
My next activity was to crash with my head forwad into a fence...^^
After that I had a contusion on my shoulder and my head looked like someone smashed my face biggrin.gif
I always wonder how the others could drive so slow blink.gif
I tried to brake and went even faster... laugh.gif

Now back to topic.
I tried some skateboarding two years ago with a friend. We met in the evening and tried to skate biggrin.gif
I never could do any trick or something, except an olli while standing, but it was fun.
Dont know why we stopped, I think we were just too lazy to meet every day biggrin.gif

I used to Skate all the time until about 2 years ago... I tried to keep skating but I really wanted to focus more on guitar so I couldn't really make time for it anymore... I still ride around every once in awhile for fun, but it's not a serious hobby of mine.

and, I have never been snowingboarding.

I went surfing in Hawaii though haha.
