Skateboarding, as it is right now, was born sometime in the late 1940s, or early 1950s. The first idea of a skateboard was something similar to a surf board with wheels. In the 60’s it became a big hit! Everyone wanted to buy them! Which brings us back to now, where you can find many people who own skateboards. Here at Pioneer Valley High School, some of our fellow Panthers have skateboards of their own. There are a lot of lit tricks that one can to on a skateboard. For example, you can grind a sick rail. Additionally, you can ollie over a car. There are a lot of skateboard brands that are fire. For example, Call Me 9 1 7, Deathwish, Revive, and Blind Skateboards are popular skateboard brands this year. Pioneer Valley High School has its own skateboard locker where students can lock up their skateboard to keep it safe while in school. This is coinvent for students that skate their way to and from school. Skaters should be treated as real athletes. Very often when a skater walks by they are judged “Look at that lazy punk!”. However, this is wrong. Skateboarding takes practice time, agilely, and metal fortitude. So, the next time you see a skater, tell them, “YO. Phat grind shred high key no cap”. As skating becomes more popular in our social construct, you might consider joining the crew. Soon most students from Pioneer Valley will be riding their skateboards to and from school.
