Did you know?

Believe it or not, there are several benefits to skateboarding, most of which people never realize! As the ultimate way to pass the time, skateboarding is often misunderstood. Here is a brief look at a few benefits obtained:

  • Enhances coordination. As with any sport, coordination is a must. However, with skateboarding, coordination, and decision making is a crucial element in safety and success.
  • Unlike other sports, skateboarding is affordable. Think about it. Once you purchase your board and your protective gear, you’re good to go. A quality board is known to last up to 6 years, depending on the use and care.
  • Encourages self-esteem. Most people never skateboard for one reason – the fear of falling or losing control. So, when having a go, you’re boosting your self-confidence by overcoming any fears.
  • Improves balance. The art of skateboarding is built on superior coordination and balance. Without the two, you may be on the ground more than your board. With regular practice, riders develop muscles to improve balance more than other-like sports.
