SCOOTER

If you have even been to Switzerland, you certainly had the surprise to see a businessman going around the city on… a foldable scooter. If in many countries scooters are seen as a toy for kids, our Swiss neighbours give it a lot of credibility. Nothing surprising then in seeing young Swiss riders come to the skatpark with their scooters. The sport is quite recent (it started around 2000) but has a tough time to really take off. Even if very criticized by the riders’ community because it brings very young riders on the parks, the FISE has been promoting the sport for many years now. Don’t rely on other people’s judgmental opinion: this sport is about to explode.
