simple python movement, skateboard

so since i’m trying to learn python, i thought i might try making a skateboarder that you can control on a half pipe, and just 2d. first off i would be very obliged if i could find some tutorials for blender and python that are more advanced than making a cube move forward. second i need to figure out a way to make smooth movement going up the halfpipe. i’ve seen some good stuff with blender, so i’m guessing theres got to be some more advanced tutorials.
