Since the late 1940s, when surfers in California started attaching roller skater wheels to wooden boxes to go “sidewalk surfing” on days when waves were flat, skateboarding has developed a lot.
Today one mainly divides skateboarding into street skate (doing tricks on flat ground and/or elements) and vert skating (skating half pipes or bowls). It's a technical sport that requires balance, some guts, and tons of patience. Skateboarding can also be seen as an art form, where lack of creativity (and maybe some fear) is the only limit to what one could achieve on a skateboard.
