How Many Times a Year Do You Go Out Skateboarding?

In addition to the sports of climbing, skateboarding and surfing, break dancing have moved one step closer to being included in the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics. As the International Olympic Committee considers adding yet another tier of competitions to their games, it should come as no surprise that there are some who are in opposition. It is important to remember, however, that there was a time when many people did not think that skateboarding and other sports could not be objectively judged. Many of these sports, like longboarding and other extreme sports have been included in other types of games and competitive settings.

As the sporting world continues to extend into another of various venues, it should come as not surprise that there are always activities being added to and taken away from various kinds of competitions. And while there are plenty of athletes who enjoy the opportunity to compete against other athletes and other teams, there are also many people who enjoy activities that they can enjoy on their own if they want. Skateboarding is one of those sports.
