Online skateboarding videos are popular because people like laughing at mistakes and cringing at crashes. But videos can also provide beneficial instruction as well.
VideoJug.com has a wide array of free skateboarding tricks videos showcasing moves that will thrill and awe spectators. You can learn how to perform a kick flip, an ollie, a grind or successfully navigate a half pipe.
Sometimes just watching someone else do something doesn't help because it all happens so fast. The benefit of these extreme videos is that they give you the opportunity to watch them in slow motion and in real time so you can see exactly how the tricks are performed.
With online videos you can see in slow motion exactly how you need to move your body, where your feet need to be positioned for a particular move and how you should land.
The more preparation you have, the more successful you can be and less likely to become injured. If your children are interested in the world of skateboarding, watch the videos with them. You can make sure they are safer by providing the instruction they need.
