2. Find shade
Nothing adds insult to injury on a hot and humid summer day than being in the direct sunlight, too. It’ll heat your gear and water up, roast your skin, and wear you out quicker than you’d expect — all things I like to avoid when skateboarding. Avoiding direct sunlight by taking cover under shade, as well as using hats, sunglasses and sun screen will keep you from getting some of the muscle fatigue, dehydration, and dizziness from heat illness. Find a nice big tree casting some shade with some grass nearby to get off the hot pavement and chill there between runs.
