Make sure your shoes are a good fit before you get on the board!

This therapist, in Florida I believe, offers a special kind of longboard therapy for his patients. It's basically all about how longboarding requires such intense concentration that it relaxes and de-stresses your brain. It's kinda like taking longboarding and looking at it as a form of meditation.
