日本でスケートボード(skateboard)をやっている人はたくさんいますよ。
日本ではX-sportsはとても人気があります(僕も見るだけなら好きです)

Just to add to sa-san's comment:

The rotunda at my town's train station has the following graffitti in gigantic black letters spray-painted across it:

SKATE OR DIE!

Does that answer your question? :p

There are a lot of people who skateboard in Japan.
X-sports are very well known (I like them also, as long as I'm just watching)

That is what sa said.

The harder they come, the harder they fall, one and all.
