Statistics show that kids are more likely to get into trouble if they're bored so one man's solution is to get them on a board... A skateboard that is! Orlando Washington of Shreveport is hoping to give kids a new positive way for them and their friends to hang out.

KSLA says He first started giving out free lessons at Stoner Park back in November on Saturdays.

Just like any sport skateboarding helps teach kids confidence and gives them a sense of reality. Not to mention it's a great way to get kids active and outside!
