One-person game It doesnt matter if youre doing it on your own or in a group. Other popular sports, such as football, need lots of people to makeup teams. This means you may not be able to play unless you have lots of friends or can join a team. For skateboarding all you need is a board and your own two feet. Whats more important is that anyone can try it. You dont have to be very fit for or to be good at other sports. _________________ _____________________________________ ____________________ _________________________________ _______________________________________ Back
