Why Is Skateboarding Popular In California Hyunchul Kim In California, there are now skateboard parks and competitions all over the world. Wherever you go in California, you can see some people who are skateboarding. Many people, who live in California, use a skateboard when they go to school or meet friends. They enjoy it, and it is one of street culture of California. If you want to ride a skateboard, you can do almost anywhere in California. Allan Jun, sixteen years old, is a skateboarder. He has lived in California for sixteen years. He skates every day, and he was good at skateboarding. “You can skate anywhere in California. That's the best thing about skateboarding, but it is dangerous to skateboard without enough practice. I've had a few accidents,” he said. But he wouldn’t stop skating; he enjoyed it too much. He hopes to be a professional skateboarder. Skateboarding has a long history. The first skateboards were invented in the USA in the 1950s. At that time, people made their own skateboards. By 1959, you could buy skateboards in shops. The new skateboards were an easy and fun way to travel around the streets. In the 1960s, skateboards changed a lot, and there were different kinds of skateboards. Some skateboards were longer for racing down hills, and others are shorter for riding in the streets and doing stunts. Then, skateboarding became popular with surfers in California. They built ramps to skate on when the waves were too small for surfing. They also skated in empty swimming pools. The curved walls of the swimming pools were perfect for doing stunts. And, many skateboarding matches were held in California. Many people was wildly excited by the games, they started to board it.
