Scootering is an intense urban sport that is bound to make your heart pump. It is often times referred to as ‘freestyle scootering’ and it can be compared to BMX and skateboarding. This comparison arises from the fact that in both sports the athletes use obstacles, tricks, and terrains in order to display the talent and skill involved.
The sport first became widespread in the US, Australia, and the United Kingdom, and it became even more popular after 2002 when the scooter was recognized as the top ride-on toy for children in these three big parts of the world. This does not mean that scootering is just a sport for kids since adults also use them to perform tricks and thanks to the lightweight nature and easy maneuverability of scooters, they are also perfect to use on a wide range of terrains.
In this sense, the sport is quite versatile since people can perform tricks on any flat ground such as in parking lots, in the street, on dirt, or most often, at skateparks. Compared to other sports, scootering is still new and it continues to grow in popularity every day, especially in other parts of the world where most people have yet to be introduced to it.
