At least three extreme sports stars have died in recent months in the U.S. If you let your kids participate in the X games, this could be their future. Kids should not be allowed to participate in extreme sports like snowboarding, skateboarding, BMX, Motocross,, Mountain Biking, and Rock Climbing. Extreme sports can be caused by peer pressure and risky behavior. Also the sports can be harmful and can lower self-esteem.

This may come off as shock. Skateboarding is illegal in certain states. There is nothing wrong with riding on a piece of wood with wheels. In the skateboarding community, most see it as an art, lifestyle, and a passion. But what about outside of the community. What do the people of this world normally think when they see a skateboarder? Most of the time people see it as destruction of property, punk kids, and dropouts, but have you ever seen it from a skateboarder's perspective, what is so wrong with this. How has this gotten to the point of being against the law in certain states in the U.S. Skateboarding has now been embedded as a sport and shouldn't be illegal.
Skate City Aurora is dedicated to providing our community with a place for health and fun, as well as providing our local schools with fieldtrip and fundraising options. Within the rink, Skate City ensures that there is a safe and family-friendly environment in which children can be themselves and enjoy exercising. There are multiple exciting programs that Skate City can arrange for your school that will help with fundraising for the school, but will also give students the entertainment that they desire. If your school would be interested in setting up private skating nights with Skate City, the school would get back $2.25 for each paid skater or $2.50 if there are 200 or more skaters. It is only $4.50 for each skater with an additional $2.00 for skate rental if needed. If your school were to set up private skating nights, you could schedule as many nights as you wanted a year. For each skating night, fun buses are available to pick students up from the school and bring them back to the school
I found it is a very nice sport because it takes a lot of coordination of the feet, which is very difficult, and you have to be very clever to keep your balance. There also are always new tricks to learn that are not easy. I have great admiration for those who have managed to become big stars in the world of skateboarding because there are so many to practise this sport and it is hard to climb among the best.
This was the earliest known advent of what we would recognize as traditional skateboarding, beginning in California, where surfers invented a plank on wheels to simulate surfing on land. According to Wikipedia, the first skateboards were originally manufactured for surfers to use when they weren’t in the water. Crafted out of square wooden boards with a set of skate wheels from roller skates, Wikipedia notes that “skateboarding was originally denoted ‘sidewalk surfing’ and early skaters emulated surfing style and maneuvers, and performed barefoot.”
In the 1970s everyone was downhill skating so the boards they had to make to support the style were shaped like snow skies for downhill. It then kept evolving, Then skateboard parks and pools came along, we had flat 10-inch wide boards with no nose and a big kick tail skate boarding was then mainly about bowl skating so it was all about air not tricks but from the from the 80s to now days the boards have stayed around the same a 9 inch nose and back tail kicker used for bowl and street skating but street skating is a style that is unique as you use
For beginners this step is really awkward. You want to have your board parallel to the wakes and keep your knees slightly bent. Have the majority of your weight on your back foot so the nose of the board does not dip down. Keep your chest and back straight up, and hips slightly turned. Hold the rope with both hands close to your back hip and try to stay straight. In the beginning your board is going to naturally want to turn 70 or 120 degrees depending on your stance. After you get out of the awkward stage of learning how to properly stand, turning is the next part. We call it turning, but it is more of a lean, almost like riding a bike. To do this you use your toes and heels. You will hear It called “digging” or “edging” in. All this means is either pushing your heels into the board and leaning back just a bit, or curling your toes and leaning forward. This will allow you to cut across the water and is what will eventually lead you into jumps. That brings us to our next point of getting outside the
Tricks are the hardest with skateboard is trick like grinding,or varial kickflip. A grind is basically scraping one or both axles on a curb, railing, or other surface. A varial kickflip aka 180 Shuvit Kickflip
Now begin a pedal motion, bringing your knees one by one toward your opposite elbow. Bring your knee as far as you can, until it will touch to opposite elbow. Then bring your knee to the starting position
Let's start with foot placement. Foot placement is very important on this trick. Your back foot should be on the very edge of the tail, with your foot covering up the whole thing. Your toes should also be hanging off the board. Your front
Once all four wheels are in contact with the ground, the skater stand on top of the board with his feet touching the grip-tape. There are two different “stances” a person can take when riding a skateboard. The nose of the board is the front and will be thicker and longer than seen in the tail. The tail of the board is considered the back and is thinner and shorter than the nose. If a skater rides with their right foot forward (near the nose) this is called a “goofie” stance, while riding with the left foot forward is called a “regular” stance. The normative belief then is for the skater to use their back foot to accelerate them forwards by pushing of the ground. For the purpose of this paper, we will imagine a person on top of the board as just described (in either stance), and disregarding the friction caused by the grip tape.
