Eric J Owens. Skateboards. May 11th , 2018.
I am not a skate boarder. I tried a few times. It was just too hard for me to do. That is why I am writing this article. A friend and I were having this deep conversation about what sport is the most difficult to master. He is a Doctor as well, and is one of the smartest guys I know. He brought up skate boarding. I laughed at first.
With advances in technology and manufacturing improving the skateboard year on year, Skateboarding grew in popularity. The mid 1970s saw a big peak in popularity for skateboarding and then again in the 1980s. Todays skateboarders are predominantly street skaters. Most boards are between seven and eight inches wide and 30 to 32 inches long. The wheels are made of hard polyurethane and are small in size to make the board lighter and the wheels inertia quicker. There are a reported 18.5 million skateboarders in the world, 85% of these are under the age of eighteen
If you are a beginner skater and considering buying some cheap skate ramps then you are best starting off with some of the small plastic kinds. You want a ramp that is not too steep, but will allow you to practice your tricks. The best of these ramps is made out of sturdy hard plastic, and they are impervious to rain and almost any type of abuse you want to throw at them. Here are two things to consider when you are looking at skateboard ramps for sale.
The damage that a sudden fall can create for your ankles or wrists is the same as that can occur to your knees and elbows. In other words, the bones can be fractured and this might even affect the use of the hands or legs. Good quality wrist guards or ankle guards can protect you from such injuries and wounds and ensure you a safe skating experience. Alright lets go over a few things you need to know when buying a board. The first thing you need to know is what kind of skating your going to be doing. If your looking for speed and bombing hills and not really doing any tricks you should go with a long board. But your into tricks and street skating and that kind of stuff you want a traditional board.
