Question by Tomato: Is skateboarding a good way to exercise?
I’ve never skateboarded in my life, and I just ordered a Stereo Vinyl Cruiser (which I heard was a GREAT beginner’s board) in hopes of learning with a friend. Is it a good source of exercise, or does it just burn a few calories? I walk a 2 mile distance everyday from school and I was planning on using the skateboard home for transportation purposes. And I’m sure I’ll skateboard around the local park on the weekends. I’m a couch potato and I want to do SOMETHING, I guess. Is it healthy for exercise or not really? (Yeah I know you get hurt by bumpy sidewalks and whatnot. I won’t do tricks though.)

not really, think about it. Its even less physical then riding a bike, and its dangerous. All you really do is use one leg to push foward. I knwo all those tricks sound cool and stuff, but they are not ver good for excercise. Its more of a recreation, but anyways you can still learn skateboarding. Riding bikes is good for excercise
