Skateboarding is a fast, thrilling action sport where you move around on a board, fitted with wheels. You can push off of the ground with one foot to start moving, or use ramps at a skate park to let gravity help you.

An Overview of Skateboarding

Skateboarding is fun and social, you can do it on an indoor or outdoor skate park where you'll get to meet lots of people. Learning exciting tricks and flips may take some time, but when you've mastered them you'll get a great sense of personal achievement.


Improving coordination, balance and flexibility are just a few of the health benefits of skateboarding.


Skate parks are free to access and skateboards themselves can be picked up from just £20.


The UK Skateboarding Association website provides lots of useful information on events and on how to get started. Also try the Skatepark Projects Park Finder
