Skateboarding Special Event Insurance

Skateboarding has come a long way from when California surfers wanted something to do when the waves were flat. The industry has grown into a market generating billions of dollars with millions of active skateboarders. Over the past few decades, hundreds of public and private skateparks have been built to accommodate the growing demand. In 2003 the International Association of Skateboard Companies designated June 21st as Go Skateboarding Day to promote and celebrate skateboarding.

In line with the booming popularity of skateboarding there has been a dramatic expansion of special events involving the action sport. Locations across the country are hosting skateboarding special events both large and small. It could be an amateur competition in a town square, a skateboard company taking over a local skate park or a large production building its own skatepark with well-known riders.

Yet something all of these skateboarding special events have in common is their need for insurance. Another thing they may have in common is significant difficulty in obtaining coverage. Skateboarding is an extreme sport with significant exposures, liabilities and coverage needs. Many insurance carriers will not have the capacity or risk appetite to provide insurance for skateboarding special events. Insurance companies may say that the safety design is inadequate or give some other reason to decline coverage.
