Skateboarding used to be the cool thing to carry around and head down to the skatepark with, But now for the past few years the relatively new extreme sport of Stunt Scooters has taken over. Hundreds of mostly boys now have the new specially designed and strengthened stunt scooters that are capable of withstanding huge stunts or technical tricks in Skateparks all over the world. Here in the UK, Every skatepark is full of Boys aged 5-16 riding around doing jumps, spins, backflips, frontflips etc
Much to the annoyance of skateboarders, they now have the lowest amount of participants of any of the extreme sports including Skateboard, rollerblades, BMX and Stunt scooters, pretty much in that order of popularity.
BUT be warned, as with many popular trends, there are a lot of newcomers trying to sell inferior products cheaply and quickly to make a fast buck and get out with your money.
Ukskate has run skateparks and skateshops for over 13 years now, Their skateshop http://www.ukskate.com/stunt-scooters.irc is located next to the former Ukskate Park, which is now run as a charitable organisation, Bones III skatepark CIC. The Ukskate skateshop only sells scooters that are suitable for this sport from Reputable manufacturers unlike the large toy shops current offerings which are generally not up to the job !
Skatepark Etiquette for Young people particularly those who ride Stunt scooters
Older and more experienced skatepark users are used to what they like to call Skatepark etiquette.
Younger boys and sometimes girls who are likely to have recently discovered skateparks, having got their First stunt scooters, will be less spatially aware in skateparks and think it's just another playground.
Skateparks are not playgrounds but are a facility for Extreme sports of which stunt scooters are now a big part of that genre.
