I was first introduced to the seductive powers of a girl on a skateboard my freshman year of college. While walking to lecture, a sophomore friend of mine (for whom I had been harboring a sizeable crush) gazed upon a girl whizzing past on a board and declared, “There’s nothing hotter than a girl on a longboard.” I’m sure the length of the board ultimately has very little to do with the chicness of the activity (as demonstrated above). Regardless, I vowed to learn that summer—a dream quickly dashed when I realized my sense of balance would certainly make the decision something of a death sentence. But for the strong of spirit (and core), there seems no better way to add some cool-looking scrapes and bruises to your life. And think about all the Supreme you can buy.
*Also, how cool is Skateistan? It's a group that helps cool girls in places like Afghanistan and Cambodia learn to skateboard. More on that and photos here.
