The wheels are then used to propel the skateboard with more force than the feet can manage. When you are learning to skateboard, the first thing you must do is to get hold of some metal gear, for instance, chains, hooks, the like or big-bellied lugs.

When you have gotten accustomed to mounting the trucks, you can now proceed to mount the wheels. This step involves a lot of practice, since it requires a lot of balance to keep both the trucks and the wheels balanced while you are trying to launch the skateboard over ramps or obstacles.
