Skateboarding has been around for the last 70 years. Yep, they were first made in the 1950s and now skateboarding is an actual competitive sport. My kids are nowhere near or even in the vicinity to skateboarding veterans however my son loves to try tricks on his Razor scooter (does that count?) These are the best skate parks in Austin to try out awesome ramps, bowls and street elements as well as space to spectate! That is where I will be!
