How to Tic Tac
The first and last time I stepped on a skateboard, I was 8 years old. I tried to go down our driveway (it was sloped), I hit a crack, the board flew out from under me, I fell, and I vividly remember lying on the ground for a good hour because the fall hurt that bad. If you're wondering, no, I never learned how to skateboard, but it's still a skill I wish I had.
If you have a traumatizing skateboarding story like me or you're just ready to learn the basics, Briana King — model, actress, skateboarder, and activist — shared some great tips for beginners on TikTok. I definitely could have used them back in the day, and I'm feeling more confident about pursuing my dream of learning how to skateboard after watching these videos. Check them out ahead, grab your board, and start practicing!
