Dad Teaching Daughter to Skateboard Fail Brings the Funny, Warms the Heart

Other than a brief, adolescent ambition to become the next Tony Hawk, I’ve never been terribly taken by “Extreme Sports.” In fact, I find scenes like this to be exponentially more entertaining than anything I’ve experienced via the X Games over the past fifteen years, and the same can be said for the video that follows.

The build-up to this one is exceptional,  and well worth Dad’s eventual, epic fail. Dad’s awesome “Win” there at the end is nothing to scoff at either.

Believe it or else, though, I think my favorite part of this clip is the epic concern expressed by Dad’s family.  Really tugs at the ole heartstrings, yeah?

Right or wrong, I’m pretty sure a scene like this would have met with immediate derision – however lighthearted – in the household of my Powell-Peralta past.  That and maybe an epic argument over the sentimental attachment to that china cabinet…

If you enjoyed that, make the jump for several other “Dad trying to skateboard” fails. Great Wednesday/Hump Day time killer. We promise…

In the realm of skateboarding Fails, there’s only one thing that might be better than watching your average, run-of-the-mill bust up — and that’s your average, run-of-the-mill bust up featuring one of the more pleasantly plump of our species losing his balance and stumbling a few feet before executing an epic face plant into the bumper of a Pontiac Grand Am. Oh, and all in front of the adoring eyes of his offspring, too. BOOM!

And to you, little one; you that couldn’t quite control your bladder there at the end. Go ahead, son. Pee freely. This time, no one could blame you…

Special thanks to The GingerHead Man, who may or may not be MIA in Kuala Lumpur, for the link and inspiration…
