    Helpful Definition for: Skateboarding & Rollerblading

    The act of riding and performing tasks using a skateboard is known as Skateboarding in Batavia, and the person who does the same is referred to as a skateboarder, or more colloquially, as a skater. Skateboarding is a relatively modern art, developed sometime in the late 1940s or early 1950s. Earlier, skateboards were made with wooden boxes or boards with roller skate wheels attached to them, and then the boxes turned to planks and eventually gave rise to the skateboard decks that we see today. The current boards are about 7ľ to 8†inches wide and 30 to 32†inches long. While skateboarding started as an act of fun and portrayed an image of a rebellious, non-conforming youth; in recent times it has gained more prominence with the increase in the number of professional skaters.

    Like skateboarding, Roller-blading is also a form of recreation as well as sports in Batavia; however, instead of skates, roller-blading is done on roller blades.†
