I Love Skateboarding

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 525 People

    It gets my mind off of things.

    When I'm mad, happy, bored, for whatever reason, i go to the skatepark and it feels like I'm in a dream. i don't have to worry about anything when I'm skating. its a great place to meet others that like skating too!

    I own a couple of darkstar boards

    and I really like them (except the wheels & wheel bearings) but they are super heave and I have a really hard time doing an Ollie. What brand should I buy next, I like the enjoi boards and element are pretty cool but I want a light board for tricks & stuff

    Skating is my release from all the stress in

    the world. When I skate it reminds me of the good in life and allows me a time to make peace with myself. Skating is literally everything to me. What would this world be without it?

    There is nothing better

    than longboarding on the beach and feeling the wind blow through your hair.

    Why do they have to die

    so young??? This was my first (and only) board! I've rode this board almost everyday for the past 7 years, broke a lot of bones because of it, had numerous concussions, and now it's time to bury it, sadly.

    Just For The Ride

    I taught myself how to ride a skateboard about 4 years ago. My older brother had a friend who was totally into skateboarding and could do a bunch of tricks. He came over to our house a few times to hang out and almost always brought his skateboard with him. I remember going...

    It's so calming to skate.

    It's just my board, my music, and I. That's just how I like it.

    I wrecked the **** out of my board trying to

    avoid a car by going up on the sidewalk. The dickhead didn't even stop to see if I was good. Last time I move for a car, that's the 2nd or 3rd time.

    I am currently using my first penny board

    that my mom bought it for me as a gift. I got introduced to skating 4 years ago when I saw a skate park and I watched a skater landing a kickflip which immediately got me amazed. Ever since then I asked my mother for a board but all she said was "no!" because I was only 11...

    Skateboarding is a GREAT lesson

    for your whole life - Fear exists in the mind and prevents you from succeeding. Challenge yourself, challenge your fears, challenge the unknown; the unknown becomes known and fear is neutralised. Skate hard, have fun, meditate: simple.

    Most people see a skateboard

    as a piece of wood with wheels. But to me it's a key, to my freedom. I feel free when I have those 4 wheels beneath me, feeling every flaw in pavement, the wind rushing past. I feel more comfortable with wheels underneath me than on my own 2 feet

    I am thinking of having my first skateboarding

    experience with a Penny Board because of how small it is and easy to transport. But I am hesitant. Skateboarding fascinates me but I'm afraid I wont like it. I dont want to be spending more than a hundred dollars and it ends up being a waste. I would like to use it as a mode of...

    Skateboarding Dream

    I don't know why I like it, but I just do. Ever since I was a kid, I just loved seeing people skate, its strange of how much people can do with just a wooden board with wheels attached to it, haha. But then I realized skateboarding had great potential! I always wanted to learn...

    I want an honest opinion on the dark star

    skateboards, I bought one yesterday for $40 the wheels are bad but in replacing them. Are they good for someone who is bad but wants to learn how to skate? I got it in 7.75 if that's makes any difference

    I love skateboarding.

    I do it every day/ any chance I get when I'm free. what sucks is not being able to skate like before. what I mean is having other responsibilities that get in the way; work, school, "adult real world type stuff".
