Beginning in 2020, skateboarding will become an official Olympic sport and is sure to interest many more people in this exciting and adventurous sport.

In 2017, more than 98,000 people were treated in hospital emergency rooms after skateboarding injuries. According to Injury Facts, more than 47,000 of these injuries occurred in people between the ages of 15 and 24.

Wrists are often injured from sprains or fractures, but "bloat" or swelling of the elbow is also common. To avoid serious injuries, such as broken noses or jaws, concussions and other head injuries, it is important to follow safety recommendations and minimize risk.

This passage is going to talk about the following new technologies of skateboard:

(1)   Skateboard preparations

(2)   Safety Tips

(3)   Focus on technique


(1)  Skateboard preparations

Check your equipment:

Be sure to check your skateboard before riding to make sure it is in proper working order.

Your skid plate should be protected from the following.

Loose, broken or cracked parts

Sharp edges on the metal plate

Smooth top surface

Scratches and cracks in the wheels

Protect yourself - wear the right equipment

According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the following basic protective equipment should be worn when skateboarding.

A properly fitted multi-sport helmet that meets Consumer Product Safety Commission standards:

Open-toe cleats

Wrist guards

Knee pads

Elbow pads

Goggles or glasses

Learning to fall:

Did you know that falling is an art? Even experienced skateboarders fall - a lot. They are most often injured in falls caused by rocks and irregular surfaces. If done correctly, a fall does not have to cause serious injury.

If you feel like you're about to lose control, crouch down so you don't fall!

Try to land on a fleshy part of your body

Try to roll instead of using your arms to absorb the force

Try to relax your body instead of stiffening it

Practice falling on soft surfaces or grass



(2)  Safety Tips

Please observe the following rules to ensure safety.

The American Academy of Pediatrics cautions that children under the age of 5 should not skateboard at all, and that children between the ages of 6 and 10 should not skateboard without adult supervision

Obey local laws about where you can and cannot skate

Never ride a bike on the street

In multi-use areas, skate on the right side, skate on the left side, and be careful to use other skates in the same area

Be considerate of other skateboarders in skate parks, especially those who are younger or at a lower skill level

Do not use headphones while skateboarding

Never put more than one person on your skateboard

Do not hitchhike from cars or bikes


(3)  Focus on technique

Before attempting more challenging maneuvers, it is important to practice and master the basic skills of skateboarding, especially how to stop, slow down and turn. In addition.

Be able to fall safely. If you lose your balance, crouch down on the skateboard to avoid falling. Try to land on a meaty part of your body, not on your arms. Relax and roll.

Skateboard at your ability level. Skateboarding skills cannot be mastered quickly or easily. Do not skateboard faster than your experience allows or at a speed that is safer than your surroundings.

Stay physically fit to prevent skateboarding injuries.

Other Safety Tips

Always practice tricks and jumps in a controlled environment, such as a skatepark with adult supervision and proper access to emergency medical care. In addition.

Be considerate of other skateboarders, especially younger and/or less-skilled skateboarders. Take turns opening ramps or other equipment.

Do not use headphones while skateboarding.

Never put more than one person on your skateboard.

Skateboarding accidents happen, so you should always know what to do in case of an emergency. Call for medical attention or an ambulance.
