Skateboarding is cool, right? It’s pretty radical. Maybe you wanna try it but you’re not sure if you can do it. Maybe you’re nervous to fall or look dumb. Well, get over it, because skateboarding is the coolest hobby ever! Here’s why you should take it up.

You’ll Find a Community

Although skateboarding is an individual activity that you can do alone, on your own time, whenever you want to, it’s also an amazing way to meet people. There is so much camaraderie in the skater community, especially in the women’s skater community, and you can use it to meet lifelong friends.

It’s Exercise Without Feeling Like Exercise

It can be hard to motivate yourself to go to the gym, but skateboarding is so fun that you find yourself wanting to do it all day every day. Well, if you do, you’ll get tons of aerobic and strength exercise in without even really realizing it. No more expensive gym memberships or struggling to convince yourself to lace up your gym shoes.

It Gets You Around

Skateboarding is also a great form of transportation that is good for the environment while also being fun and allowing you to get to know your neighborhood and enjoy your community.
