This is a great video for anyone who likes to take on the challenge of learning a new skill or perhaps talking yourself out of doing just that. Meet Mike Boyd who had a video go viral last year trying to perfect a skateboard trick. The video caught the attention of a professional skateboarded (who knew they existed? Well good for you) by the name of Tony Hawk who invited him to learn a new trick on a skateboard and do it to raise money for charity. Dropping the carrot that if he did it successfully he would donate a signed board for them to auction off for more money towards the cause.

You will seldom see anyone more determined to make it work. Watch and enjoy.
