In order to become a good skateboarder, you must practice a lot. Take to the streets and find other skateboarders to help you hone your skills and be the best you can be. Have them teach you the basics, and slowly move on to more and more complicated tricks so you can progress to be the best.

Practice is key. The more you skate, the better you will become. The key to trying new things on a skate board is to not fear, so trying buying plenty of gear in case you crash. Also, try skating and getting new styles down while not around other people, this way you won't have the embarrassment factor.

There are many things you can do to become a good skateboarder. First, learn the basic Ollie. All other tricks stem of this one. Next, find a group of friends you can skateboard with and learn from. Lastly, check online for videos that will help you improve your skills.

If you want to become a good skateboarder then you will have to start off slowly on your board definately with some knee pads and a helment only skating on solid surfaces and not trying any tricks or ramps until you know how to use the board very well without falling.

The best way to get better is to take lessons. Find someone who will teach you. Otherwise, watch good skateboarders and try to do what they do. Rent some instructional viseos.
