We are in the midst of winter, but many of us are already looking forward to spring, warmer weather, and getting outside to enjoy the activities that we love the most. Even as people in the midwest are still dealing with the repercussions of six to 12 inches of snow, it is still possible to imagine a day, not too far in the future, when we can get back outside. To the golf courses. To the bike and running trails. To the skateboard parks.
If you are someone who has given or received an electric skateboarding gift you understand the anxiousness that many people feel as they wait for warmer weather. And while there are many indoor skateboarding opportunities available across the country, powered skateboards are meant for longer distances than these inside options provide. A skateboard with electric motor, for instance, cannot be enjoyed in a smaller space. A skateboard with electric motor can help people enjoy long Sunday morning trips, as well as weekday options for getting to work. Snow and ice, however, are major obstacles.
Consider some of these statistics about the skateboarding population:
- Someone who skates 26 times or more a year is known as a core skater.
- Someone who skates one to 25 times a year is known as a casual skater.
- Of all skaters, 77.1% are male. In comparison, 83.4% of core skaters are male.
- In contrast, 23.9% of all skaters are female, while only 16.6% of all core skaters are female.
- As many as 500 skateboarding parks exist in America right now.
- Instead of buying their skateboards at large retailers, 77% of skateboarders prefer to shop with small specialty brands instead of considering the top brand names that are on the market.
When you are out scooping the driveway or clearing the sidewalks of snow it can be difficult to imagine a warmer spring day. If, however, you are a the owner of a new electric skateboard you likely have no trouble looking ahead to a warm day in the future when you will hit the road on your favorite form of entertainment and transportation.
