Because bicycles, scooters, roller skates and skateboards used by children of all ages on weekends do not offer a very comfortable use. There is a more convenient usage area for professionals on weekdays.

How to Ride a Skateboard?

If you want to skateboard, you must first be able to balance on the skateboard. Once you get used to this, you should push yourself on the skateboard with your feet. Once you get used to this, you need to learn the jumping movement on the skateboard called olie. You can hold on to a heavy and large object to perform this movement.

What you need to do for Olie is to lift the tip of the skateboard and perform a normal jump at the same time. After performing this movement by holding on to an object, you should try it on your own. If you’re making progress on this, jump higher every day.

Learning to skateboard and becoming a professional requires patience. But this job turns into fun by learning new things every day. Who knows, one day a person who is very novice in skateboarding will become successful as he practices and one day turn into a professional skateboarder who rides the skateboard in the skate pool.

Especially if you start at a young age, you will be very knowledgeable about this subject when you grow up. Also, you should not choose skate parks with bad ramps. One of the most recommended skate parks is Maltepe skate park and the other is Ataşehir skate park.

How to Ride Skates?

To be able to skate, you have to be brave and confident. You can buy yourself a pair of skates and start learning. Balance is very important in skating. If you examine carefully, you can see the brake device under one skate. You can use this brake by rubbing it on the ground. So you slow down and stop. You have to be fast to go up the ramp so you don’t fall. And try small movements like jumping. If you learn to skate, you’ll see how fun it is.

Don’t panic in case you fall. Because if you panic, you will fall. Knee pads, armbands and helmet are also very important. If you are just starting out, I recommend using gloves. Riding with assist wheels is easy but slows you down. Once you feel confident, you can try beginner skates without auxiliary wheels. As you improve yourself, you can move on to intermediate and advanced levels.

If you don’t know where to buy your skates and are searching, I can recommend you the sports stores in shopping malls. Moreover, the skates there are of very high quality and useful. There are different color varieties. Here’s how to get on your 4-wheel skates without auxiliary wheels:

  • Walk in a roller skating manner, placing first one foot in front of the other, then the other foot.
  • Walk as in the previous movement, but this time walk as if you were rubbing the soles of your skates on the ground. In fact, this does not mean that you are walking anymore. Because now this means being able to skate.

How to Ride a Scooter?

A helmet, knee pads and armbands are required to ride the scooter. The 3 wheel bike is for small children. It would be more appropriate to use a 2-wheel scooter after the age of 5 or 6. Don’t be afraid to ride a scooter, trust yourself and start.

First, put one foot on the scooter and push the other foot on the ground. That’s the basics of it. Sliding down ramps may seem challenging at first. But when you learn the job thoroughly, it becomes a lot of fun. Going up ramps can be very tiring. But you will definitely get used to it.

At the same time, riding a scooter is a very nice sport. Mostly, people learn on their own, without any help. After all, all it takes is courage. Like most sports, this branch is learned by falling and falling. Once you learn to ride a scooter, you can also try an electric scooter. I’m sure it will be very easy for you.

We turn every gap we find into a holiday and use all the opportunities we catch to the full. Sometimes we traveled for kilometers on the stony mountain road (Adrasan) with our vehicle, sometimes we walked for hours on narrow paths with children on lap (Gelidonya Lighthouse). We were very tired but we had no regrets.
