The next time you’re out in public and you see a group of kids doing something cool with their skateboards, stop and think about it for a second: Are they skateboarding?
I mean, it’s not just for fun.
Are they practicing their new tricks or doing something about the pollution in their backyard?
Is their dad hanging out on the deck or in a nearby backyard?
Are they taking a walk with a friend?
Do they skate in the water?
Or maybe they’re on their skateboard or something?
I’m not saying you can’t skate, just think about what you’re doing before you act it out.
Skateboarding has its place in a skateboarding community, but its important to be aware of what is going on and not become the stereotypical skateboarding parent.
It’s just as important to realize that the kids are doing something out of character and to be supportive of the skateboarders.
It doesn’t matter if they are skateboarding in the park, on a skate board or in the backyard, kids can do the best they can with what they have.
As long as they keep the spirit of skateboarding alive and the kids feel safe, everyone is good.
