In this video Eric Joneckis gives you a few tips on acting like a true skateboarder. If you want other people to take you seriously as a skateboarder, you need to look the part. Here are a few tips: Always wear a shoelace belt, skateboarding shoes that shouldn't be untied to take them off, long hair and a cap to keep it all in place. Next to style, attitude is the most important thing you can have. Learn how to fool the people around you into thinking you are a good skateboarder. If you can't do a trick, blame it on someone or something else. Dial up a friends and make up a story about a trick you just did.
