Skateboards are the necessary equipment for the sport of skateboarding. Skateboards are generally made of maple plywood with a polyurethane coating. The rider moves by balancing on the board with one foot and pushing with the other. Many skateboarders do tricks at skateparks, aided by ramps, bowls, and half-pipes.

The skateboard was invented in California, United States, during the 1950s. The first skateboards were made by attaching roller skates to a board. This new sport was often called “sidewalk surfing.” Many surfers took to this sport when the scarcity of waves didn’t allow for traditional surfing.

Some skateboards are called longboards. As you might have guessed, these are longer than ordinary skateboards. Their wheels and axles are also more rugged. They are designed for riding very fast on roads or paths.
