Skateboarders make up a distinct and unique culture of people. There are many reasons why a skateboarder takes to his or her board. For some it is the freedom of expression that attracts them as the skateboarder maneuvers freely in open and tight spaces.
For others it is the enjoyment of extreme thrills. Many and most skateboarders like to emulate the dangerous skateboarding tricks seen and performed by some of the all time greats.
Others enjoy the camaraderie of the sport. But while skateboarding exists somewhat on the fringe of leisure and competitive sports it has some mainstream attraction.
When it comes to photography, pictures, images and photos skateboarding can produce some aesthetically pleasing results.
Photos through the years have also documented how the skateboarder image has changed. Skateboarder historians point to the origins of the punk and grunge scene in the early 1990’s as adding an intense emotional element into the mix. An infused harder edge and attitude to skateboarding ensued as new waves of skateboarders started to exhibit this intense emotion in their wardrobe and board technique.
Some will argue that the stereotypical angst teenager, rebel, outsider, loner or goth exhibitionist still make up a large part of the skateboarding population today. While this observation has some merit you will find people from all walks of like who like to skateboard.
The sport today continues to grow in popularity. Skateboarding is being heavily petitioned to be included in the 2016 Summer Olympics. We will have to wait and see how this develops.
