Skateboarding is the act of rolling on or performing tricks with a skateboard.

Also known as: Rullebrett [norwegian] / Rullalauta [finnish] / Patineta [spanish]


Skated his way back to health
After facing fifty percent disability, Tor Haave in Trondheim picked up a skateboard and skated his way back to health.

Information

Back in 2009 a small wound on the knee lead to an aggressive streptococcal infection.

He survived the infection, without having to amputate the leg, and was told he might get back to working 50%.

Due to difficulties with the wheelchair on a trip to London, he bought a skateboard and had his friend drag him around the city on that instad. This worked out great, and he continued using the skateboard on his own after he returned from the trip.

After many hours of training he will soon be working full time, and at the age of 42 he has become the oldest skater at Trikkestallen Skatepark.

His physiotherapist was impressed and gave the following statement.

Skateboard is not a standard treatment in physiotherapy, and Ive never actually dealt with skaters at the clinic before. But it is clear that there is a continuation of it with balance, coordination and stability. - William Stoltz
