I skateboard switch mongo. I always thought it was easier just to pump on whatever foot wasn't tired at the time.

I can push mongo with my normal pumping foot (right) in order to ride fakie, but my switch skills/balance need some work. I plan on "starting over" to teach myself how to ride switch more fluidly.

I haven't skateboarded in like 8 years and I still have my board. I tried skateboarding the other day and I am HORRIBLE! All I can still do is ollie and shove-it.

Ouch. I fractured my right elbow earlier this year from hitting an uneven crack in the sidewalk haha. What sucks is that it happened at 9:30 in the morning on campus and I was there until about 10pm that day. Of course I had to hurt my right arm, since I'm left handed. :P

When I did skateboard I never broke anything, but I had a couple of bad wrist, leg, and arm injuries. I was very close to braking my wrist once though.

This, but my ankle. My board snapped in half kick flipping a set of stairs and it made me land hard, so I had a sprained and swollen ankle for a week. I miss skateboarding, but I don't really feel like hurting myself at this age.
