I just developed a phobia of standing on wheels

I realized it’s much more than a hobby – it is a community and lifeline. For some, it has been an escape since childhood. Others start because they like the fashion or look up to famous skateboarders. It felt good to be a woman trying it out because we represent a small portion of riders. Overall though, we all share similarities: as stated by USC, “Skateboarders have this tenacity to practice a trick thousands of times, they are creative, and they have cross-cultural interactions not common in other spaces.”
