Last weekend I headed over to Alki beach for a street party. The entire area was closed off, which meant it was the perfect time to show off my nonexistent longboarding skills. Yep, sorry to break it to you guys, but I look much cooler holding a longboard than riding one. I'm still learning the basics: kick, push, coast, don't run into any one, don't fall, and for gawd's sake go faster cuz right now you look like an idiot! Them's the step-by-step to longboarding according to my sister.
