What advice do you give to a new rider?:
Don't just longboard, there's way too much terrain to put your wheels on. Hit the bowl, skate a ledge or some stairs. Even if you don't go full out into every aspect it all translates and helps you get beyond mental blocks that prevent you from progressing.
What keeps you skating?:
Nothing else is nearly as awesome, fun or rewarding in my life.
