To be honest, I don't think there's an anime or manga series that's based on skateboarding. There are characters who skateboard though.

Air gear is the closest that I can think of as well. However, they aren't using skateboards but micro-motor driven rollerskates.

Renton Thorston from Eureka 7 sky boards, which is kind of like skateboarding (well an extreme sports version of it). The kid with the golden bat in Paranoia Agent rollerblades, and kid Goko rides a cloud, both of which are close but not the same.

Thirding Air Gear, but it's about motor-powered rollerBLADES.

Only thing that comes to mind other than Air Gear is "The Kid" story from the Animatrix and some skaters in the first mini story of Batman Gotham Knight :/

Closest I can think of is Monster Rancher. Lead character fights with a skateboard.

Joined this forum just to say that.
