Skateboarding is one of the most popular and iconic street sports. Whether you want to learn the basics to cruise around, or you want to learn to kickflip like a pro, you can learn what you need to get started. Skateboarding is actually quite a sensible mode of transport. Quicker than a jog, greener than a car, skateboards surf pavements rather than annoy taxis on the road like bikes so often do. You can take one on a train and not clog up the whole aisle, then store it under your desk at work. For commuting they make so much sense, yet they're also still possibly the most fun mode of transport since the space-hopper.
