Cruising along the sidewalks while keeping an eye out for the best ramps, slopes, and rails you can find – that’s what skateboarding is all about! Skateboarding has come a long way to be acknowledged as an Olympic sport. Since its debut as a competitive event in 2020, skateboard sales have been on the rise, and skating on the streets has become a more frequent sight. Choosing the right board that best suits your needs as well as a place to skateboard is almost as important as mastering the sport itself. There are so many deck variations to choose from and even on our tiny island, there is a myriad of designated spaces just for the sport. Here are our top picks of the best skateboarding parks, lessons, and gear that you can find in Singapore.
