skate to the hospital


skateboarding can be hazardous to your kid's health

From CBS News

A study, published in the journal, Pediatrics, tracked the number of injuries involving traditional skateboards. During a 2-year time period (2015-2016), skateboard injuries sent 121,398 kids under age 18 to the Emergency Room. Three-quarters of them were boys.

An average of 60,000 kids per year? Injured? Because of skateboarding? It seems that skateboarding is a dangerous injurious activity. Maybe that's why very few of us adults skateboard!
