There are more kids skateboarding in the United States than playing Little League baseball. In many ways it is the new American pastime. And wiht X Games going global, skateboarding really has no limits. But then again, it does. Because as the Onion so eloquently put it, for every trick landed, there are a thousand failed attempts.
In this lovely assembly we relish and cringe at the fact in no uncertain terms. From speed wobble hell to freefall faceplants to that stubborn crack in the sidewalk. Skateboarding is not for the faint of heart but it can certainly black you out.
