Safety Tips for Skateboarders

Anyone who engages in the sport of skateboarding as a recreational pastime should understand the obvious dangers that come with riding a piece of wood on four wheels — but if you do engage in skateboarding activities, you may be able to keep yourself and others safe by following these protective guidelines:

Wear a Helmet and Pads
Some of the most commonly associated injuries with skateboarding accidents are broken bones and brain injuries. The risk of these injuries can greatly be eliminated with proper use of safety gear.

Do Not Ride in the Street
One of the biggest risks to skateboards is the risk of being hit by a car. There are designated areas to ride skateboards to ensure that they are not struck by cars.

Supervise Young Children
Everyone that has been on a skateboard knows that the risk of falling can be high. Young children that skateboard should always wear safety gear and be supervised by parents.

Know How to Fall
One of the best ways to ensure that you are not injured in a skateboarding accident is by knowing how to fall. Tucking and rolling and falling sideways may ultimately save your wrists and arms.

Try New Tricks Carefully
If you want to learn a new trick, it is recommended trying it on a soft surface, such as grass and without wheels or trucks. Try to learn it carefully and protect your head and limbs.
