Skateboarding is a fantastic workout and you’ll make numerous friends along the way. Here are a few reasons to do skateboarding!
1. You make good friends for life
, if I could go back in time and satisfy my more youthful self I would thank him for deciding to begin skateboarding.. I made numerous buddies at that time and we had a huge group of people skateboarding every day. We shared everything on our struggling teenage minds and I still see a lot of them after 20 years. In fact, every year we have a reunion where we go skate and hit the club to share memories later.
Skateboard pals are the best ones you can have (with a few exceptions) and they remain good friends for life, even if you don’t see each other for several years.
2. It’s fairly low-cost
Skateboards aren’t really expensive compared to other sports, it’s equivalent going to the health club and paying for a membership. Despite the fact that you break decks and shred your shoes, it’s still a lot more affordable compared to other sports. It’s dirt low-cost when I look at my mountain bike components and compare those to skateboarding.
Naturally, depending on the gear you buy and how often you break a deck costs may vary. Wheels and trucks can last for many years and you can get an excellent total newbie skateboard for around 70 bucks.
3. Go anytime you like
Depending on the weather you can go skateboarding anytime you like. You don’t need to drive someplace (unless you’re checking out a remote park), you can simply get your board and go. When the weather condition is bad you constantly have the alternative to skate or check out an indoor park inside your or a friends garage.
4. Healthy exercise
Skateboarding is a great exercise. You burn a ton of calories and can keep opting for hours. Skateboarding makes your legs and core more powerful. Your dominant leg might get a bit muscular compared to your other leg. Skateboarding can be a replacement for cardio and pressing yourself will greatly improve your total fitness and health.
5. It’s not that dangerous as people think
Skateboarding isn’t hazardous at all. This misunderstanding has to do with the early days of skateboarding when the technology wasn’t quite up to par since where we are today. Bad gear breaks and leads to injury and it took place a lot at that time. It’s actually a fairly safe sport compared to others and scientific research studies confirm this.
When you look at the data, basketball or football is much more hazardous. Simply do not do anything you aren’t prepared for and skate according to your level. Most of the injuries involve attempting something beyond your ability level. Slowly develop and work your way towards tricks.
6. Great for commuting
A skateboard is a fantastic ways of transport. Just using a skateboard for travelling help you find out to stabilize and when you’re comfy you can move on to more sophisticated stuff.
7. It’s for all ages
Skateboarding is for all ages and not simply for kids. I know people that began skateboarding in their 30’s and got pretty knowledgeable.
8. Great for reflexes
Skateboarding requires a lot of focus and control. If you have a tough time focussing on something, skateboarding might help you to work on that.
9. Increase your joy
Skateboarding makes me pleased and I’m sure this goes for many skateboarders out there. Landing a trick you’ve been practicing for a long time really gets you stoked.
10. You do not need to end up being a pro to enjoy yourself
No matter how excellent you are or how bad, you always master a minimum of a couple of techniques. While it sometimes can be frustrating not getting that kickflip down. simply carry on to something else and do not overdo it. Aggravation usually makes you less focussed.
You don’t need to be a pro. Skateboarders at all levels enjoy themselves and skate to their ability. More skilled skaters know what it’s like to learn standard tricks and most of them appreciate you for even attempting.
