I met Aaron Kyro a number of years ago when he first moved to San Francisco from Montana. A little while later he founded his company Braille Skateboarding. He produces videos that teach anyone how to skateboard with exact steps that make you better and more skilled. He calls it learning skateboarding on a gradient from simple to more and more difficult.
He is always busy producing his content, but I sort of bullied him into teaching me how to skateboard by filming him saying he would and posting it on YouTube.
So early on a Saturday two weeks ago I met Aaron and his crew down by the Civic Center and I had my first lesson.
I am certainly not doing any tricks yet, but I can at least go more than 20 feet without falling. The next thing I need to do is just practice pushing and riding. I also need to set up a balance board so I can improve my balance at night after the kids fall asleep.
Have you ever learned a new sport as an adult?

Great job, actually amazing since skateboarding is not easy! They just make it look easy.. congrats from us here in MyTime. We’re all about trying new sports as well! http://www.mytime.com/
I could never get the hang of skateboarding… and even tried to cushion the falls by stopping in grass. About a year ago, I took up Muay Thai boxing and I love it. I’m almost 42, and have never been in better shape!
