Red Bull Media House recently released an incredible piece discussing the array of benefits that skateboarding has on mental health. It provides people with a sense of camaraderie, a sense of accomplishment, and the ability to rewire neural pathways necessary for healing. This piece is moving, inspiring, and educational. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Words from Red Bull behind the video:
"Skateboarding has many amazing body and mind benefits – but we too often like to pretend skateboarding is all we need.
However, as we get older and life creates new challenges, skateboarders are not impervious to life’s obstacles. Every now and then, just like rehabbing a skate injury, skaters need help getting back to full mental strength.
Collectively as a community, skateboarding, with the help of some amazing individuals and organizations, is pushing the benefits of skateboarding forward. The community is removing the stigma of asking for help in order to better understand how skateboarding can be used as an auxiliary to strengthen the mind and even as a form of rehab."
