|Globe Stubby skateboard|
If I had my childhood again, there are two skills I would persevere a little longer to master. The first is riding a bike (no joke, if I have to turn my head I can't help turning the whole bike, and if I have to slow down I generally fall off) and the other is skateboarding.
There is something so cool about cruising down the footpath on four wheels; I wouldn't even need a bevvy of tricks to pull, just the wind in my hair and tuk tuk of concrete joins under my feet would be enough.
One thing's for sure though, skateboards weren't nearly as chic as this Globe stubby back in the eighties. I've got serious design envy! Maybe I should put one away 'for Junior'...
