Skateboarding was usually seemed as dangerous acts by rebellious kids in Singapore where they skated around and caused lots of disturbance.

The National Youth Council and Nparks in Singapore have built more skate parks around the neighbourhood for youths to find a suitable place to skate.

Street skating is generally viewed as a dangerous act in Singapore by many as they are concerned that skaters would lose their control while skating and knocked onto others.
