Community Perceptions of Skateboarding

In many communities, skateboarding is seen in a negative light. It's close relationship to hip hop music, baggy clothes, and images of skulls has made it misunderstood. Skateboarding is, in fact, a multi-faceted activity that is all at once a sport, a hobby, a form of transportation, and a lifestyle. And unfortunately, it often seems that whenever teens gather in groups, adults tend to get suspicious of whatever activity is taking place.
