Where does come from?
The skateboard emoji was approved in 2018 as part of a large batch of sports-themed emoji that includes a lacrosse stick, a frisbee, and a softball. But, other emoji in the batch included a cupcake and kale, so … it was an interesting year.
The skateboard emoji was part of Unicode 11.0, and added to Emoji 11.0. Tony Hawk didn’t totally approve of the initial design so he worked with Unicode to update it, making it a skateboard that actually fit into this year … like 2018 … not the 1980s. So what’d he fix? He removed the grip tape and the gap in the middle. Sweet, Tony, sweet.
Who uses ?
The skateboard emoji is used in posts pertaining to skateboarding and skater culture. 🤘

To celebrate, here’s a rare photo of me and Nyjah Huston pic.twitter.com/enG0CdFcqT
