In this edition of Get It Right, Get It Tight, I’m living out one of my inner desires by being transformed into a skater girl! Eye Opener intern Stan and I hit up Paine’s Park for my lesson, where we were among seasoned skaters and lots of smooth terrain. I’m all geared up in the proper attire – wrist bands, skater shoes and a skull helmet. And Stan’s internship is on the line if anything happens to me!

Today I’m learning how to longboard – it’s a special type of skateboard made for cruising, transportation, and for the pros, coasting down hills. But I learn the basics: the proper stance, how to balance and how to stop! Take a look and see if Stan keeps his internship by the end of the day!

And be sure to tune into Eye Opener, a different kind of morning show, weekdays from 6 to 8 a.m. on PHL-17
