Tried and it bit me I fell. Fifteen minutes total. Never did learn to skateboard.

Pretty much the same thing. Started out slowly and latched onto my Dads VW Beetle as he left for the shops one afternoon. He didn't realise I was external stores and by the time he hit the main road I was in deep sh#t. Eventually let go and took a dive into the tarmac, then had to hobble home. Got a hiding too when Dad found out.

Still have the scars and occasionally a bit of gravel will surface....:}

My 13 year old tried to teach me telling it was "easy", like "flying a plane" trouble is ...my maximus gluetius never hurt so much frying a plane. as it did on the skateboard, ...my 40+ year frame couldn't hack it so the answer is .....Never !

frying a plane

In a little bit of olive oil and with some chopped onions, I gather the average plane is very tasty.:ok:

Took the wheels off, found a mountain & waited for Winter. Much more satisfying & faster too.
