SKATEBOARDİNG SPORTS

Skateboarding, which was started by attaching wheels to wooden pieces, is today one of the extreme sports preferred by amateur and professional athletes from all over the world. This sport, in which acrobatic movements can also be performed, is both an adrenaline and a very enjoyable sport.

What is Skateboarding?

Skateboarding, which gives the name of the sport, is the name of the device used during sports. It is generally based on the principle of moving with one foot on a wooden surface with wheels.
