Talk places to skate, board setups, pros, tricks and more with others that live to skate. There may be requirements to join select groups. Others are open, you can just join up and drop in. It's all in the details of each if you'd like to know more. Groups help to assemble those with special interests withing the skateboarding community. So older skaters for example, or girls that ride. There's a lot on offer within these groups and you'll find a lot of active discussion. We've also included skateboarding forums and other chat pages that have a broader appeal.
