The skateboarding industry has so many different companies, teams and styles of riding that the range of blogs and twitter accounts currently out there are endless. Here are a few twitter accounts that I found best covered skateboarding as an extreme sport (think X-Games).
Although the “ESPN” pretty much provides enough credibility, this Twitter account covers all the latest news in skateboarding. Skaters signing with new labels, new video clips, and contest winners can all be found here.
