Unspoken rules of the skatepark

1,350 views

Published on

Skateparks are fun, but they can be not so fun if you don't know how to conduct yourself at the park. All parks have rules posted, but those rules are more like general life rules.

The unspoken rules of the skatepark are the laws skateboarders are expected to know if you want to enjoy your time at the park.

Covered in this topic are :
- Sharing the park
- Taking turns
- Always read traffic
- Respect the session
- The skatepark is NOT a playground

Please share this presentation with everybody you know from skateboarders, to parents, to kids, to your mom.
