/gerund phrase/

The application of any physical or mental knowledge acquired through the relatively sustained practice of side-walk surfing (aka skateboarding) to other domains, activities, or knowledge. Skateboard knowledge is necessarily applicable to other topics, since its very essence is the application of physical and mental knowledge derived from water surfing to activity taking place on non-liquid surfaces. However, skateboarding's evolution may be heading back to a more fluid medium, which might explain why skateboarders are so obsessed with air, as in "I'm catching big air" and "nice air dude!" As such, we may very well see flying skateboards in the near future.
<I totally landed that calculus problem!> The skateboard knowledge (epistemological skateboarding) applied here is as follows (skateboard knowledge in parentheses): if you keep trying to (land the trick) solve the problem, but (fall flat on your face) get marked off full points for it on your calculus mid-term, (get back up) practice solving the problem, (try again and again) and practice often, you will eventually be able to (land) solve the (trick) problem on the final exam.
