I've been a skater for about two years. Never got too great at it, but I got some skill. Haven't touched my board in a month. I wear skate clothes which are usually Element shirts because of how damn awesome the designs are.
riding a board isn't that hard. you just put one foot at the front set of bolts, push off the ground with the other one, lift foot on the ground and put it on the bottom set of bolts, and ride. It's such an easy concept. to turn to the left, lean to the left. Turn to the right, lean to the right.
