Skateboarding is a sport, an art form, a lifestyle, and a culture. Kids have been doing it for decades, and it has even become an extreme sport. We can all, however, benefit from skateboarding, even if weâ€™re not bombing halfpipes and grinding down rails. Not only does skateboarding get us outside, but it is a fun and effective way to get from point A to point B. Make sure you have the proper equipment to protect against injury and accomplish your goals!
