Board Sports Activity DaysSkateboarding was invented some time in the 40s or 50s, when a bunch of bored surfers in California decided to experiment when the water was too flat to go out and catch waves! Somebody terribly resourceful came up with the idea of attaching some wheels to wooden boxes or boards, and skateboarding was born! Over time, the boards - and indeed the whole sport - became more refined, and boarding became one of the coolest, most widely practised extreme sports in the world. You can now take it a step further and enjoy mountain boarding, which is like snowboarding but with wheels on grass. Pick up some serious speed as you hurtle down the hillside with the wind in your hair!
