Streetsurfing has been a huge success in American schools and now pupils in Dorset are among the first in the UK to try it out as part of their PE lessons.
You’re kidding right? A huge success? Hey, I’ve got a Monorail I want to sell you, but maybe that’s more of a Shelbyville idea… More schools that teach skateboarding in PE, as well as this one in the UK that teaches kookboarding.

Want to learn something new in your PE lessons? Well how about a craze that combines skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding all in one? Streetsurfing has been a huge success in American schools and now pupils in Dorset are among the first in the UK to try it out as part of their PE lessons. It’s meant to help improve your balance and keep you fit by wobbling your hips and moving your feet.
If it’s a success in Dorset, it could be taught all over the country.
The board has two rotating wheels and has been designed so the rider can move it forward without touching the floor. It can even go uphill or downhill! Twelve-year-old pupil Matt told Newsround: “I think it’s really good because it’s different to any other sports I’ve done before.”
Someone must have one hell of a PR agency or amazing salesman to be able to get a school system to buy these crappy skateboards.
Youngsters on board for these PE lessons!

They are believed to be the first in the country to have skateboarding lessons at school. Bruntcliffe High is the first of five secondary schools in the city that will teach pupils to spin their wheels with top skateboarding coaches in PE lessons, instead of battling it out on the rugby pitch or netball court.
Err… WTF is netball?

Instead of stepping on a skateboard and learning to skate in the parking lot, children enroll in the “Skating Academy.” Also, clearly no one learns to surf anymore by trial and (drowning) error, but rather at one of the many schools.
Really? Everyone learns to surf by going to a school? Sure they do.
