Learn How to Drop In on a Skateboard

Step 2 - Check Out the Ramp
When you first get to the skatepark, try skateboarding around the bottom of the ramp. Push around the park a little bit, getting a feel for the transition (ramps). Also, make sure you are wearing a helmet before you try this. Messing up while dropping in is a great way to smack your brain case on the ground, and end up never skateboarding again. Wear a helmet.

If you aren't used to skateboarding on the material that this ramp or park is made from, this step is very important. The feel of concrete, wood and metal are all very different when skateboarding. Certain skateboard wheels will work better for park or on other transition than others - if you are planning to mainly skateboard at the skatepark or on skate ramps, you might want to get some park formula wheels. However, if you want to skate both park and street, that is great too. Learning what kind of terrain you want to ride on will help you better decide on your skateboard setup.

Once you have a good feel for what it is like to skateboard around the bottom of the ramp or park, and a little of what the transition feels like, head to the top of the ramp.
