I have always found that the skating community is very open and helping.

Any little thing can mean the world to a kid.

I used to skateboard a lot when I was a teenager. There are a lot of misperceptions of skaters. And stuff like this happens a lot because everyone has to be taught certain things that you can't figure out one your own, ollying being the main one. But this was sweet.

Well, I'm not a skater but a roller, but doesn't matter for this; no one give a shit about your gender on a skate park. It's all about the skills and improving. The only complains i saw on skate parks were for kids using it as a slides, in that case... sorry but it's not a kids playground but a sports facility.

And the moral of the story is: the mum is an asshole for prejudicing people.

/r/WholesomeMemes I love this it's awesome and sucks that the mom had to have that idea but I'm glad it was proved wrong. Faith in humanity restored :)

3 years old. But great story. Here is an article on it: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3283929/Mother-six-year-old-terrified-taking-skateboarding-s-not-girls-praises-teen-boy-helped-learn-despite-getting-teased-friends.html

You could just say "thank you" to the teenager next time...

"...you're feet are wrong." Oh dear, dad.

Sense of pride *and accomplishment* FTFY

It's a Skateboard Paradise and Dad-in-Training Park.

The skater community gets a bad reputation thanks to the mother's who do turn around when they hear teens "swearing and smoking" The real skaters have more ambition than you can imagine, the ones who get up after eating shit in front of a crowd only to attempt the same trick 5-10 more times, on film. That's ambition.

It would be rare to see a little kid trying to learn and not see others in a skate park help them out or give them props. It's a seriously misunderstood community of people who don't feel like outcast in the first place. That's why we all have so much respect for each other. I do however wish skateboarders would grow up with the whole scooter thing.

Not a cape in sight, but I’m pretty sure he became her hero.. even if for only a moment.

This is super sweet, but that guy looks like he’s about 23

Same thing happened at a park that I skated in. Everyone in the park was smoking and playing loud ass music and this little girl comes and tries to skate. Turns out all the dudes saw her and they instantly tried to help the little girl out to get her started off in the right foot. Then her parents come and thank every one of us. Skate community gets a lot of shit but damn I've never met a group more friendlier than them, everyone's so support because they know how hard it is.

A good story. But weird that it is a good story. Should be a standard story.

Left with a sense of pride and accomplishment...

I don't have the link but I'm on mobile but someone tracked him down and this guy turned out to be like, 19 and worked as a skate instructor.

That guy clearly has / had a little sister. Nice to see a little compassion and encouragement.
