Persuasive Writing

Skateparks and Skateboards are the Best.

Kia ora koutou, my name is Dayton and I am here to explain why Skateparks and Skateboard are great, from my own perspective and experience. .

firstly A skatepark is a purpose-built recreational environment made for skateboard, bmx, scooter, wheelchair,and inline skating. A skatepark may contain half-pipes, quarter-pipes, spine transfers,handrails funboxes vert ramps, pyramids, banked ramps, full pipes, pools, bowls, snake runs,stairset,down rails,kinked rails, curved rails, down ledges,roll ins gaps to jump which most people like jumping it's also a big obstacles of ramps for BMX”s  Scooters wheelchairs and inline skaters to enjoy

Metro Nashville was built in July 1st 2004, it is famous for having three different types of skating terrain. The Metro is the largest free skatepark in California. The brand ‘etnies’ uses the skatepark  for tournaments. There are many many skateparks all over the world

Secondly, skate parks are good for kids, it keeps them occupied instead of getting into trouble and hanging around the streets getting upto no good. Skateparks give children the opportunity to learn how to skate, scooter, bmx,  learn wheelchair tricks, and inline skating.  

thirdly if you want try out skateboarding all you need is a standard or good quality deck reliable truck wheels and bearings and some where to skate. If you want to be a skater that likes ramps that type of skater is called a Vert Skater or Tranny Skater. If you like skating on flat ground, rails, ledges and curves that type of skater is called a Street Skater. There are two types of stances you can skate, they are Regular or Goofy. If you're a beginner you will need abec 5 bearings but if you are willing you can try out abec 7's or Bones. bones are the fastest bearing brand in the world. Bones was created from Tony Hawk's one of the most known skateboarder to ever live and other famous skaters are Lance Mountain, Mike Mcgill, Tommy Guerrero, Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen, Stacy Peralta, George  Powell they were all in a group called the bones brigade but they shorten it to boness Fastest bearings they have made are Bone Swiss bearings, they are super fast and go twice the speed as abec 7’s.

Thank you for listening to my speech I hope you liked it and learnt valuable facts about why skateparks and skateboards are great.
