Nike SB has a new commercial featuring professional skateboarder P-Rod--son of comedian Paul Rodriguez--and what skateboarding means to him.
To be honest, the closest thing I've been to actually skateboarding is holding onto my son as he attempts to find balance on his board. Nonetheless, I find what he says in the commercial valuable, especially for someone who is just learning to skate, "...It's the experience paid by all the mistakes. It's the heart to get up and try again..."
