Go Skateboarding Day - 2011

Skateboarding is a fun sport that is played around the world by people of all ages.

Skateboards are manufactured in all different lengths, depending on what the skateboarder wants to do with it. There are various tricks that can be performed on a skateboard, such as aerials, ollies, grinds, kickflip, and spins.

Did you know that out of all of the sports played around the world today, skateboarding is ranked number six in terms of popularity and number of participants? In the United States alone, there are more than 300 skateboarding parks. And that number continues to grow daily! 

To celebrate today, head over to your local skate park to enjoy some skateboarding. Or if you've never skateboarded before, what better opportunity than today to learn!

I love this picture...
