Skateboard-associated injuries: participation-based estimates and injury characteristics.

It is found that skateboarding is a comparatively safe sport; however, increased rates of injury are occurring in adolescent and young adult skateboarders, and a new methodology that uses participation-based injury rates might contribute to more effective injury control initiatives.
