The Health Dangers of Skateboarding

Hoboken has them on the shore overlooking the New York skyline. These skateboard ramps attract young boys, primarily. They have good balance. You have to have good balance to practice this sport. But the most frightening thing is that these kids risk serious injuries to their knees and legs and head, including skull fractures and brain trauma, from the falls that they can sustain. Protective gear should be encouraged by their parents and by their physicians. It is unconscionable to let them risk their health without proper guidance.
