MELBOURNE, Australia, February 17, 2023 (Newswire.com) - According to leading retailer Twelve Board Store, which stocks everything from electric skateboards and longboards to limited edition skateboard decks and more, skateboarding is a great sport to learn and just about anyone can pick it up. To give newbies confidence in their skateboarding journey, Twelve Board Store is sharing their top tips on choosing the right skateboard and protective gear and learning the basics.
Twelve Board Store explains that choosing the right skateboard is essential to help beginners build their skills safely. As a beginner, focusing on the deck, grip and wheels is most important. For those with smaller feet or those who are heavier than average, Twelve Board Store recommends opting for a shorter deck as this will allow them to maneuver more easily.
Grip tape is a material that is wrapped around the underside of the deck and is essential for beginners as it allows them to grasp the skateboard better while also making it easier to maneuver while remaining stable on the skateboard, explains Twelve Board Store.
Skateboard wheels can make all the difference as they determine how fast the skater will go, says Twelve Board Store. With wheels available in several sizes and hardness levels, it's important to ensure the wheels are suited to the intended terrain.
Twelve Board Store recommends using protective gear such as a helmet, wrist guard and knee and ankle pads. Falling is common when skateboarding, especially for those just starting out, so it's best to be protected with the proper gear to ensure safety.
Day one is always going to be a challenge, but Twelve Board Store says the most important thing to do is start with the basics. When learning how to stand on the skateboard, it's a good idea to place the board on a flat ground and practice balancing before moving.
To get kitted out with the best gear, including limited edition longboard skateboards, enthusiasts can drop into Twelve Board Store in Melbourne or visit the retailer online.Contact Information:

Overdogs Podcast Episode 7: An Hour and a Half of Uncensored Conversations with Darren Till + Yoel Romero, and Hosts Ice Bagz, Mac Mally, and New Co-Host Platinum Mike Perry.
LOS ANGELES, September 30, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Today, the Overdogs Podcast drops another banger episode featuring host @IceBagz_, co-host @Mac Mally, and new Co-Host @Platinum Mike Perry with guests Darren Till and Yoel Romero.
Mike Perry is the “toughest human being on the planet,” according to Joe Rogan, and he makes his podcast hosting debut with old foe Darren Till as his very first guest.
Platinum Mike Perry Said: “I’m stoked to be part of the Kanpai Media fam and share my fighting experience, perspective, and journey on the OverDogs Podcast — it’s for sure one of the best shows out there in the Combat Sports world and I can’t wait to connect with all the 2MM fans out there that have watched the show so far and also give back to my fanbase and sport!”
Darren Till and Mike Perry go toe to toe for 40 minutes in this wild, uncensored exchange live on air. In the opening minutes, Till tells Perry, “I just wanna fight you and knock you clean out.” Till later added, “Your specialty is power and pure toughness. My specialty is beating people like you.” Till and the team give their prediction for Alex Pereira vs Jiri Prochazka at UFC 295.
They all discuss the probability of Mike Perry fighting Logan Paul if Dillon Danis pulls out and the suit by Logan’s fiance, Nina, against Danis. Mike talks about his new contract with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
@IceBagz_ said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Platinum Mike Perry as a new co-host to the OverDogs Podcast family, he’s no doubt already added a layer of excitement and relevancy to the show as we are in the works of scaling the series to other premium leagues, conversation verticals and cultures, as we continue our exciting journey in scaling the podcast.”
Till candidly discusses his business that was sued and later sold off. Finally, Darren Till and Mike Perry verbally agreed to fight in approximately 8 months in the boxing or bare-knuckle ring.
Yoel Romero talks about his car chase in Jordan with Mike Perry, his next opponent, and his controversial Israel Adesanya’s loss at UFC 248 that changed the trajectory of his MMA career. Yoel also lays out his plan for the UFC middleweight division, Sean Strickland’s first title defense, Dricus Du Plessis and Jared Cannonier.
“If he had more time to recover, the fight would have been different.” Yoel shared his feelings that Israel Adesanya needed more rest after his KO loss at UFC 281 to Alex Pereira and KO win just 5 months later at UFC 287.
Yoel also hints at who his next fight will be with. Watch the episode to see who Yoel Romero will be in the octagon with.

Kenyan Scholars Get a Motivational Boost from the NBA All-Star
NBA All-Star Jaylen Brown with EFAC Scholars
Education For All Children (EFAC) recently hosted NBA All-Star and 7uice Foundation leader Jaylen Brown for a motivational Q&A with the program’s high school students.
PORTSMOUTH, N.H., September 21, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Education For All Children (EFAC) recently welcomed Boston Celtics player and founder of The 7uice Foundation Jaylen Brown at one of their annual workshops. An exceptional athlete and social justice advocate, Brown set a goal to expand his footprint as a global citizen in 2023. The synergy between the two organizations led to this initial engagement with EFAC Scholars in Kenya.
In late August, over 200 students from EFAC’s high school program gathered in Nairobi, Kenya, for the annual Bridge-to-Success Workshop. This week-long residential workshop brings together students from all over Kenya to collaborate with EFAC staff and volunteers, ensuring their success in the coming school year. EFAC’s program focuses on mental health and wellness, building leadership and communication skills, and honing practical skills, such as digital and financial literacy. With The 7uice Foundation’s Bridge Program emphasis on social-emotional wellness, leadership development, and resilience coaching, Brown opened the workshop with a live, interactive Zoom call with the students to set the stage for the week.
Students prepared questions for Brown ahead of time, and a lucky few got to speak with him directly. Quinanne, a 10th-grade student who aspires to become an inventor to solve food scarcity in desert regions, approached the microphone appropriately dressed in her tracksuit to ask, “What is one of the greatest lessons you have learned in life?” Brown’s resounding message to the EFAC Scholars was, “There are a lot of lessons that life will teach you. But there’s one lesson that I’ve learned and I think it applies to sports, it applies to music, it applies to school, it applies to everyday life. And that is to have confidence. Never let somebody break your spirit, never give somebody the power to break your spirit.”
“That a renowned athlete and advocate would take the time to speak with our scholars and provide such generous advice and encouragement means the world to them. The warmth and energy was palpable throughout the interaction. These young people come from backgrounds where their future is not guaranteed, their education often ends before 8th grade, and they are often not convinced that they are valued even after they’ve achieved more than they could have imagined. Events like this reinforce the truth that they matter and give them confidence to fulfill their dreams and make a difference,” commented EFAC Country Director, Mary Kiguru.
As the leading education-to-employment program in Kenya, EFAC continues to grow in size, scope, and depth of impact. Matt Gianino, U.S. Executive Director of EFAC notes, “There is an African proverb that illustrates a core tenet of how EFAC optimizes its impact. It is, ‘If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together.’ Collaborations with like-minded organizations like The 7uice Foundation and education and empowerment champions like Jaylen Brown are critical to the long-term success of the young people we serve. By sharing his perspectives as an educator and activist as well as life-changing lessons he has learned along his journey, Mr. Brown has helped raise the gaze of future change-makers in Kenya.”
About Education For All Children (EFAC):
EFAC is an 8-year education-to-employment program serving Kenyan youth who demonstrate strong academic ability and leadership potential and who would otherwise be unable to continue their education beyond 8th grade for socioeconomic reasons. EFAC supports students in their academic, social and pre-professional development throughout high school, college and into their careers. EFAC was co-founded in 2008 by philanthropists Rod and Nancy Van Sciver of Rye, NH and African education leader Prof. Leah Marangu of Kenya, who became the country’s first female professor at Kenyatta University in 1978 and then its first female university Vice Chancellor at Africa Nazarene University in 1996. EFAC currently operates offices in Portsmouth, NH and Nairobi, Kenya, with active programming across Kenya. The program’s ultimate goal is to develop tomorrow’s professionals and leaders, creating paths out of poverty that transform their own lives and positively impact their families, communities, and country. www.efac.org
About Jaylen Brown:
In July 2023, Brown signed a five-year, supermax contract extension with the Boston Celtics. The deal is the most valuable deal in NBA history. A first-round top three draft pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, Brown joined the Boston Celtics at just 19 years old. He has since achieved two-time All-Star player status, is Vice President of the National Basketball Players Association (making him the youngest member of the executive committee in 2019 and reelected for 2023). As Vice President of the NBPA, Brown aided in the creation of THINK450, which helps NBA players gain control of their name and likeness. A community builder on and off the court, Brown hosts a Rookie event, during NBA summer league, in efforts to build connection amongst players. Brown’s decisively clear devotion to social justice, especially changing the inequity in the education system, has led him to regularly be considered one of the most enlightened and intelligent athletes in the league.
About The 7uice Foundation:
Founded by Jaylen Brown, The 7uice Foundation collaborates with institutions, organizations, and social change leaders to bridge the opportunity gap for traditionally underserved Black and Brown communities. In the United States, The 7uice Foundation’s signature initiative is the ‘Bridge Program’, a multi-day workshop focused on leadership, emotional literacy, and education for Black and Brown youth. This year the program hosted students from Boston public schools and worked in collaboration with the MIT Media Lab on a STEAM based program. Outside partners inclusive of NASA, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and many individual leaders also participated to inspire these bright scholars. www.the7uicefoundation.org
