Skate Irmo

Challenge Yourself and Push the Limits

The nature of skateboarding requires skaters to learn on their own and develop strategies to succeed. Skaters frequently perform a trick hundreds of times over long periods before developing proficiency or experiencing reward for the effort. Skaters in the study reported that they apply these lessons of resillence to their lives outside of skateboarding.
