Q. I`m just starting skateboarding and am semi-comfortable with the ollie but amazingly enough feel more unstable on my board when just cruising around town. Do you have any tips for riding stable over things like sidewalk cracks and over rough surfaces like a gravely mall parking lot? I`ve tried to watch local skaters but it just seems like they ride right down a steep hill with very little action and stay on the board. I find once I get some speed i`ll catch on a crack in the road or sidewalk and bail. Any tips you can offer would be great. Also how does wheel size affect ride? What size is good for beginners?
