Well Skateboarding originiated from a group of surfers that did not want to wait in the heat of the day to catch a wave so they put axels and wheels on their surf boards and started "Surfing the streets". Now today skateboarding has to deal with many things like skateboard parks and diffrent tricks and accessories and also skateboarding is now used with a couple pieces of plywood put under about 2 tons of pressure to give the plywood the curves and then cut by hand or machiene into diffrent sizes like 7.5 (which i skate) or 7.6 and so on. Also skateboarding became a extreme sport and now thousands of people skate. Hope this helped any. :)

Where can you find a skateboard coach?

I think the most important thing is to define what you mean by skateboard coach. Do you mean someone to help a young skater with the actual act of skateboarding, or more of the how-to-get-started-in-skateboarding-for-a-career type of coach? Both will be somewhat hard to find in any legitimate sense, simply because part of the allure of skateboarding is that, simply put, there are no coaches.
