The First Invented Skateboard

Skateboarding was first started in 1950 in California because surfers had the idea of surfing on the streets. No one knows who created the first skateboard but several people had the same idea at the same time.

These first skateboards were made out of wooden boxes with roller skate wheels slapped under the board. Many people got badly injured and hurt riding those.

After a bit the boxes got changed into plank. More recently companies produced skateboards with decks made out of layers of wood. These days if you hear some people ask “Who was the first person to create skateboards?”, then you could say that it was surfers who came up with surfing on the streets.
What do you think skateboarding in the future will be like?
