What to do with the balance board now that you're totally fit? Well, you could ... skate it. Joystiq will confess that stepping onto the yoga mat-turned-skateboard for the first time was intimidating. The original Skate taught them that even fake skaters have to practice their cool (and sent posers packing in the process) -- and that was just thumbs!
Putting their body in the spotlight at a recent "feet-on" event that featured EA's Wii spin-off, Skate It, was another reminder that what looks easy on TV is just a carefully orchestrated illusion. Thankfully, Joystiq's play session didn't end in a faceplant.
