Skateboarding is the most popular sport in the world, and it has become the sport of choice for the young.
Yet while it’s easy to get lost in the allure of the sport, a study has found that skateboarding is not necessarily a bad thing.
For those who aren’t already familiar with the sport or its unique culture, it can be intimidating, said Jason E. Lee, professor of management at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
Skateboarders often feel that they have to work extra hard to get ahead, Lee said.
That, in turn, can discourage the more successful, motivated skaters who aren`t afraid to go the extra mile to get to the top.
Skaters may also not know how to properly use their boards or how to get the most out of them.
In other words, skateboarding doesn`t necessarily require a degree in mathematics or engineering.
The study found that more than half of skaters are self-taught and some don’t even own a skateboard.
Skating can also be a lot of fun, and there are plenty of things to do during the day.

Skateshark: An interactive guide to skateboarding The most important lessons learned through the research The study looked at the attitudes and preferences of skater and skateboarders as well as their behavior.
The research also found that there were many reasons that skaters were choosing to skateboards over skateboards.
Most importantly, skateboarder attitudes are influenced by their attitude toward skateboarding.
In the survey, skaters said they are more likely to enjoy skateboarding if it`s fun, fun, interesting and a way to connect with others, Lee wrote in the study.
In general, skateboards are less socially distanced than skateboards used to be.
This means that skatesharks have the potential to connect socially with other skaters, Lee noted.
Skater attitudes can be impacted by their experience, Lee explained.
“Skaters who are new to the sport will often have an initial reluctance to participate.
They may not want to do the extra work to get better at skateboarding,” Lee said in an interview.
“However, this initial reluctance may fade as the skater gets to know their peers and becomes more confident in his or her skills.”
A skater who is used to using a skate board for a couple of hours a week could find it easy to skate for two hours every day, Lee continued.
But this isn`t always the case, he said.
Some skaters may not enjoy riding because they don`t like the feeling of weight on their feet, Lee added.
Some may have trouble keeping their balance on a skate because of their body size, weight, height or their age.
They might have trouble balancing on a board because they have no confidence in their abilities, or because of injuries or other problems.
If these factors are affecting your skating ability, then it’s important to work on improving your attitude, Lee advised.
“If you`ve got a strong attitude, you can work on developing a more confident skateboard-er attitude,” Lee wrote.
“Don`t be afraid to push yourself to get your skates up to speed.”
