    I watched this video yesterday. It did not dawn on me until today that I have spent the last month with the same concept for fathers to reach out to help their children, as well as the entire reason that I developed my website. I will turn 43 next week. I just purchased my first skateboard last month, and have been using videos to learn how to skate, so that I can in turn teach riding to another troubled individual. I envisioned providing a social identity and way for this person to bond with people. I find that skateboarding is a good outlet mentally, physically, and spiritually. I am thankful to have seen this here , as it has helped me to think that maybe I am on the right path.
