Skateboarding is a street sport that has about 20 million fans around the world. In the United States, the population is said to be larger than that of basketball, a major sport. Skateboarding is also widely popular here in Japan, and most people have probably tried it at least once.
Skateboards originated in the United States in the 1950s, and were developed for surfers to ride on land when there were no waves. Skateboards became popular among young people who were sensitive to the latest fashions, and spread explosively beyond the framework of being a substitute for surfing on land.In addition, by mixing with various streams such as music and fashion, a wide variety of styles were born, and it has evolved into an attractive “culture” that does not fit into the frame of ordinary sports. In recent years, skateboarding has gathered attention for its competitive nature, and has been added as an official sport in the Olympic Games, continuing to provide people with fun as the times change.
Skateboarding is also a convenient means of transportation, and it is fun and exhilarating to just ride, but as you learn and improve your skills, you will have more freedom. Regardless of how good or bad you are, the sense of accomplishment you get when you try a new trick and succeed, or when you enjoy skating with your friends, will make you forget about the stresses of everyday life and keep you hooked.
