I think it's really cool that shops like Armitage have such a great skateboard presence. I'd like to be good enough to grab it and go when the bikes are under construction or if its just a few blocks. I could have one at work for lunch time, etc.

Suggestions, anyone? How do you learn? What's a nice beginner board?
