Skateboarding emerged in the late 60’s in Sunny California. This state is still considered to be the center of the skateboard movement. Californian surfers invented the skateboard as the land counterpart of surfing. The first prototype of today’s skateboard appeared in the US in 1958. The Board was rectangular in shape and slightly resembled the current model. Swerving, downhill — that’s the area where first skaters have mastered and perfected.
At that time, it was enough dashing to slide, just not to fall to be held in high esteem. Some time ago, everything changed. The more complex the stunt, the greater the recognition it has with the public. Over time, skateboarding has gained recognition not only among boys but also among girls. Now women sliding on the railing or benches can be seen in the city. Skate is already a part of life for many people; it became the kind of style. But now skateboard is mainly used as a simple mean of transportation. Almost every young person has or had a skateboard.
