    I used to do it when I was younger, but now you've got just boys at the skatepark doing tricks and stuff, and you can't just skate around. You've got to be risking your face to be accepted it. Can anyone think of any places that's good to just skate around that won't be too populated and also anywhere I can get a good quality skateboard, around £100 that's more girly...

    Hello.

    I skated for about 10 years, and still class myself as a skater even though I haven't done it properly for over a year now because I'm insanely focussed on studying. And all my friends still skate all the time. So I hope I can answer your questions!

    As long as you follow the 'skate park rules' and are cool with everyone else, they won't care at all if you just cruise around! In fact you'll probably end up quite highly regarded if you start to turn up quite regularly, even if you don't do any 'good' skating.

    Main thing is just to not get in anybody's way!

    If you want a girly board, just look online. Try any major online skate shop and I'm sure you'll find something to suit your needs. They have full setup boards that you can buy as a complete package, or you can buy the parts individually and make the thing yourself, but you probably know that already? Rollersnakes is the biggest online shop now I think.

    Anyway, I'll repeat again that the main factor at a skatepark is to learn the rules, which basically means be cool, courteous and don't get in anyone's way. Basically don't do what the scooter kids do!
