CRAP !!
The US Consumer Products Safety Commission reports that about 26,000 people were treated in hospital emergency rooms last year with skateboard related injuries, placing it at number three on the list.
The most common types of injuries are sprains, fractures, contusions and abrasions. Not as common, but still reported, are deaths due to skaters colliding with cars and deaths from falls.

Six out of 10 skateboard injuries are to children under the age of 15

One third of those injured have been riding less than a week, the next highest number of injuries are experienced by riders with a year or more of experience
The most common injury for beginning riders is falls
Experienced riders commonly get injured when they attempt stunts or ride on surfaces that are not smooth.
