The HUD icon of the Skateboard.

The Skateboard was a weapon and vehicle that was dropped during the development of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Though the player can still use it as a weapon through modifications, the weapon is nowhere in San Andreas. The skateboard was meant to be introduced to the player in the mission Madd Dogg's Rhymes[1][2]. The skateboard is developed enough that it is specified to which surface is skateable. However, in the gta3.img file (unless opened from IMG Tool), the animation file for the skateboard exists.

Bully

Rockstar Games finally brought the skateboard to life in their game Bully for protagonist Jimmy Hopkins. The skateboard animations would be very similar to what GTA: San Andreas would have had as the Bully game engine is just a modified version of the same engine used for San Andreas.
