Go Skateboarding Day

Today is Go Skateboarding Day! Skateboarding originated in the 1940s. According to an urban legend, the idea came from surfers in California who wanted something to “surf” while the water was flat. Today, people all around the world enjoy this recreational action sport, but California remains the epicenter of the skateboard community.

Some of the most popular skateboarding tricks are aerials, ollies, grinds, kickflips, and spins. The annual X Games competition features some of the most accomplished skateboarders in the world. In 1999, Tony Hawk became the first skater to land a “900,” which requires two and a half revolutions with the skateboard.

To celebrate Go Skateboarding Day, head over to your local skate park. Check out the scene, learn how to skateboard, or try some new tricks!
