Yes, you can do skateboarding in the winter as skateboarding can be done in the off-season as well. Skating in off-seasons may not feel the same, however, if you follow some tips you can have fun and enjoy skateboarding.
During winter days you can skate in indoor skate parks or outdoor parks near your house. You can also skate on the roads near your house if it is not slippery or covered with too much snow.
However, if the weather is too bad and it’s too snowy outside then skating at that time is not a good idea. Now, many people may ask ‘Do you skateboard in the winter?’ and my answer to this question is yes, I do. I really like skateboarding during winter.
Tips for skateboarding in the winter
Many people in parks or roads are seen skateboarding in winter. So, you also can do skateboarding in winter and have a rewarding experience following some easy tips.
- Firstly, find a dry place for skateboarding near your house because a dry place is best for skateboarding. Wet places are risky for skateboarding as there is a high chance of slipping.
- You will not be able to stake and enjoy it if you choose a wet place. If you don’t find a dry place outside, you can do skateboarding in your garage or basement.
- My second tip will help you if you want to do skateboarding in a place completely covered in snow. You can use snow skates which are like mini snowboards to take the advantage of skating in the snow.
- It is mainly designed to give you the fun of skateboarding in snow during winter. People who love skateboarding are seen skateboarding every season to keep practicing their skills.
- Another tip is to cover yourself with layers of clothes because the cold wind will hit you and freeze you. You will not be able to skate properly if you don’t cover yourself with proper clothes. Your body will get warm very easily as your body will continuously move while skating.
- But, if you don’t cover yourself with enough clothes you may catch a cold easily. Your body will freeze as well if you stand still for some second. This is why wear a good amount of clothes if you want to enjoy skating in winter.
- This last tip I am going to give is for your safety purpose. If you are willing to do skateboarding in the winter, you must maintain some safety measures. As I already mentioned, many places get wet during winter so there’s a high chance to slip while skating. So, put on a helmet, wrist guards, knee pads, closed shoes, etc. to ensure your safety.
Although skateboarding is a fun activity it can give you serious injury if you don’t maintain enough safety. There are some people who also have this common question which is, can I skate in extreme cold weather? The answer is yes you can, but it is better not to. I personally don’t recommend anyone to do skateboarding in extremely cold weather for safety purposes. If you are not a professional skater, then going skating in extreme cold weather is a very bad idea.
