FUN FACTS (source: Factinate.com)

funfactsFidget spinners: Fidget spinners are made with skateboard bearings!

Around the world: Today you can find skate parks in nearly every country and on nearly every continent around the world. Accept Antarctica because, obviously.

Urban Warrior ‘99: During the early 1990’s, the U.S. military briefly tested using skateboards as a means to maneuver inside of buildings and urban settings in a program called “Urban Warrior ‘99”. I wonder if the boards were camouflage?

History: The first skateboards were made by literally hammering skates onto boards of wood.
