Really Dumb



Skateboarding is an activity where people use a board with wheels to move around on different surfaces. It is like riding a surfboard on land. People use skateboards to ride on sidewalks, streets, skate parks and even on ramps. Skateboarding is a fun way to get around and it is also a great way to exercise. A skateboard is made up of a flat board, four wheels and two trucks that attach the wheels to the board. It looks like a long, narrow surfboard with wheels that you can stand on and ride. To get started, you will need a skateboard, safety gear, and a place to skate. Safety gear includes a helmet, elbow and knee pads, and wrist guards. You can find skateboards for sale at sporting goods stores, toy stores, and online. Skateboarding has been popular since the 1970s and it is still growing in popularity. It is now an Olympic sport and the skateboarders that compete in the Olympics have to be extremely skilled. Fun Fact: Skateboarding was invented by surfers who wanted to have something to do when there were no waves.
