    This Is What Happens When A Mom Takes Lessons From A Pro Skateboarder

    Mom of three Jennifer Latch had never been on a skateboard until pro-skater Aaron Kyro agreed to give her a lesson.

    "I am raising three girls" Latch told BuzzFeed Life. "I want to show them it's ok to push gender boundaries. I want to show them it's ok to put yourself out there and to continue to stay active." / Via Braille Skateboarding

    She continued; "It's important to take time for self-exploration and personal growth. Learning to ollie is a start."
