When I was little, I was the type of kid who would sit on the board and roll down the hill instead of actually riding on it like a normal person. But what little kid doesn't want to use their imagination?
I was a real skateboarder, not a gifted skateboarder. I represented that skateboarding was fun to do by being terrible at it. - Lance Mountain
I obviously did not start using a board the right way until a few years later. I was too afraid that I would fall off and get hurt if I rode the right way. But later on once I actually stepped up and tried, I shook my head and laughed at myself for being such a sally, for not riding the right way obviously.
