Skateboards are used as a method of transportation, as a hobby or a sport, and because of the creative aspect some also consider it an art form.
Someone who skateboards is called a skateboarder or skater. Check out our list of skaters below.
A skatespot is basicly any spot good for skating. This includes both obstacles constructed for skateboarding, such as the ones found in skateparks, and natural occuring spots such as curbs, ledges, stairs, gaps etc.
The sport has been shaped and influenced by hundreds of skateboarders throughout the years. Skateboarding originated as "sidewalk surfing" in the American state of California in the 1950s. A key skateboarding trick, the ollie, was only developed in the late 1970s.
Skateboarding is often portrayed in the media as an extreme sport, although this is criticized by some skaters.
The only country ever to ban skateboards was Norway, where the use, ownership and sale of skateboards were forbidden in the period between 1978 and 1989. The ban was said to be due to the perceived high amount of injuries caused by boards.
Skateboarding is however banned in many public spaces all over the world.
Nokre gonger kjenst det som om tida har stått stille. Slik var det då vi leste innlegget til Severin Myklebust i Vikebladet fredag 11. september. Brått var vi tilbake til slutten av 1980-talet då rullebrett, eller skateboard, var forbode og blei sett på som ein kriminell aktivitet. Dette forbodet var vi også det einaste landet i verda som hadde.
