It is “Go Skateboarding Day” and skateboarders were rolling around Bay Area skateparks.

In Providence Skate Park in Riverview, there have been a ton of new kids – boy, girls and adults – coming to the skate park every week, a spokesperson said. Even the first-timers are open to come. There are camps and lessons to help guide them and become more comfortable on the skateboard. 

Skateboarding will be in the Olympics in 2020 as a trial run, but lovers of the sport hope it will become permanent.
