NSGA Reports increase in Skateboard Participation The National Sporting Goods Association (NSGA) reports 10.1 million people are skateboarding. This represents a 4.2% increase for the year 2007. The 2 biggest losses in participation where Cross Country Skiing (down 35%) and Wrestling (down 33.3%). I guess folks no longer want to ski uphill or get sweaty in a unitard. Go figure!

The methodology for arriving at these numbers seems riddled with uncertainty as to accuracy. The NSGA may be better off counting the number of croquet mallets used in violent crimes.
