The current interest in skateboarding follows naturally from the growing popularity of snowboarding as young people want the exhilaration of this winter sport to continue throughout the summer.

The popularity of in-line skating has also obliged municipalities and private organizations to install ramps and there are sites that can be used by both in-line skaters and skateboarders. In addition, a Guide d'aménagement et de gestion : Parcs de planche à roulettes, a reference and design document addressed to all municipal authorities who intend to set up a skatepark as well as to those who want to upgrade an existing facility, is available from the Presses de l'Université du Québec.
