Pro Skater Mike V Happy To Teach On Demand

LONG BEACH, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Pro skateboarder Mike V has a very busy schedule, but he doesn’t mind teaching the finer points of his sport on demand.

And he does just that on his TV series, Skateboarding With Mike V, which is available at Sportskool, an On Demand TV network dedicated to sports instruction.

The show’s second season debuted yesterday (Mar. 1), and Mike V says he strives to make it as complete as possible, including tips for his trademark tricks, as well as lessons on the sport’s lifestyle and culture.

As he puts it, “It’s pretty complete for a beginner and even someone with a lot of experience will take away something.”

Last season focused on skating on flat ground, but now Mike V hopes to build on that by demonstrating how to apply that knowledge to a skateboard park.

In his words, “The environment can be intimidating when you’re there for the first time.”

But while Mike V thinks his show can help ease the learning curve, he admits it’s no substitute for actually getting on the board.
