I'm having a midlife crisis and want to start skateboarding! :)
I actually have to work so I can't take the skateboard out that often. I was thinking that there may be something that I can do in the house while watching TV that will help with my skateboarding.
I've seen balance boards where you stand on a board, the board sits on top of a cylinder and you essentially can rock left/right as the cylinder rolls underneath the board. Here's a link to how to build your own. There are other variations. Some actually look like a skateboard deck.
Will this help me develop balance on the skateboard?
