Be Thankful For Skateboarding

Skateboarding gives a lot to us.  This Thanksgiving, be grateful for having the ability and freedom to ride a board.Here are just a few of the reasons why we’re thankful for skateboarding:Inspiring Our Creativity
Skateboarding is not just a creative outlet, but it actually encourages us to think in different ways.  Skateboarding allows us to inject our personalities into it and to make it an art.

Building New Friendships
One of the best ways to meet new people is skateboarding.

Strengthening Existing Friendships
Learning from each other.  Being inspired by each other.  Challenging each other.  Skating has the power to create friendships that last a life-time.

Keeping Us In Shape, Physically and Mentally
Skateboarding is great for your physical and mental health (we talk more about this here).

Seeing The World In A Different Light
Most people walk down stairs without thinking twice about it.  We see far more meaning in things.

Entertaining Us
Skateboarding is fun to watch, whether it’s in real life or on film (and it’s much of what inspired us to build this site!).

Pushing Us
You try, you fall down, you get up, you try again going faster and with more determination than ever.

Being There At All Times
You don’t have to drive to a gym, put on a jersey, or assemble a team.  As long as you’re near your board, you can ride it.  It doesn’t matter the time of day or the time of year.

Healing Our Soul
Are you worried or stressed?  Feeling lost?  We have a remedy.  Hop on a skateboard.

Teaching Us The Lessons Of Life
Through skateboarding, we learn how to be focused, how to be brave, and a countless amount of other things that we can use in our lives.

So this Thanksgiving, when you’re contemplating what you’re thankful for, remember what skateboarding gives us.

After all, skateboarding doesn’t take holidays off.  So grab some turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy, spend some quality time with your friends and family, and then GO SKATE!
