However, sometimes you might just need to. I lived in Seattle for seven years, and up there you don't get much choice! But the rain wasn't too hard - and you jsut had to be careful. So here are some ideas for if you skate in the rain:
- Avoid puddles - this might be obvious, but on the other hand something deep inside your brain might yell, "SKATE THROUGH THAT!" It's a terrible idea!
- Avoid heavy rain. If you can.
- Dry off your board when you are done. And I mean dry it off carefully and completely - get some towels and maybe even a hair dryer! Don't just walk in your house and leave your wet skateboard dripping in the corner.
