Because of our hills, skateboarding is another part of the uniqueness of Laguna Beach. I skated hills using steel wheels here in the 1940s. Youngsters are going to skateboard our hills and streets. Some won’t always obey the rules. Try to remember being a kid. Did you ever break a rule? I certainly did, and still do, by rolling a stop or jay-walking occasionally.
Our city provides for the homeless, elderly, tourists, arts community, and numerous other interests. Why not skateboarders?A skate park and a designated skate hill would relieve the pressure on our streets, and could even be profitable in the form of lessons, safety training and a venue for competitions.
Like it or not, skateboarding is here to stay. We all need to coexist.
