What are the Olympic skateboard disciplines?

Olympic Skateboarding will feature two disciplines: Park and Street.

Park

Park (or bowl) competitions take place on a hollowed-out course, which resembles an empty swimming pool, with steep sides and almost vertical at the top. Skaters will perform tricks such as grabs and spins out of the top of the bowl, grinds around the pool coping and aiming to be as creative as possible around the entire course.

Street

The street skateboarding competition course takes its influence from the streets (hence the name) and features stairs, handrails, benches, walls and ledges. This type of skateboarding is most popular across the world and will see skaters doing various flip tricks, grinds, slides and big gaps.
