10. The City Is Yours
Football is restricted to where you can play. I you want a proper game you need a field, two goals, 21 other people, and a ball. Even if you wanted a quick kick about you still have to find a handful of friends, a place with no smashable windows, and where cars won’t come and mow you down every two seconds.
With skateboarding, the city is yours. What? You don’t live in the city? Not a problem. Anywhere there’s tarmac an and a bit of space, you’ve got yourself a skate spot. You explore, discover, and skate.
From shopping precinct hand rails and secret spots under bridges, to town hall step ledges and back garden pools. You are unrestricted. You are free.
