Skateboarding=cardio vascular?

Well I have been running for at least 15 mins every night but as it is still cold here at night time i've come down with the flu. I'm pretty much better now and I haven't been running in about a week. But I got to thinking, is skateboarding a cardio vascular activity? I don't mean like rolling along the sidewalk to the store or anything, I mean actually skateboarding and doing tricks. I usually skateboard for at least an hour each day and ALWAYS am drenched in sweat afterwards, so could this be my cardio vascular exercise to get in shape? As well as doing some weights and a bit of running and eating healthy, is this going to work? Is skateboarding a cardio vascular activity?
Thanks in advance

Re: Skateboarding=cardio vascular?

If you're sweating and breathing hard then yes, skateboarding is excellent for cardio. The great thing about skateboarding is that you're more likely to keep at it since you enjoy it. And while getting fit you'll be perfecting your technique. Hope it works out for you.
