Skateboards are back and better than ever

Buy a skateboard

A skateboard is intended for tricks and riding in skate parks. You can drive a greater distance with them, but that is not what they are intended for. For distances there are longboards, cruisers, surfskates or hamboards. We list the characteristics of a skateboard

A skateboard has hard little wheels . Because the wheels are small, around 53mm, the deck is also closer to the ground and therefore provides more stability. Small wheels also start moving faster than large wheels. The hardness is around 99A. These wheels are wear-resistant and are not affected by slides. If a skateboard wheel were soft, it would be very difficult to get the board into the air.

The deck of a skateboard has a clear kick nose and a kick tail. This allows you to flip up the board and make jumps with your skateboard because you have a lot of grip. The kick nose of a skateboard usually has a slightly larger tail angle, to provide slightly more grip when landing. In addition, the deck has a kind of invisible resilience, which is called pop. This pop allows higher jumps and reduces the impact (inpulse) when landing. A good deck is made of 7 layers of maple wood.

The length and width should not be too large. The skateboard then becomes too slow and fast moves are not possible. The length of a skateboard is around 31 inches and the width is around 8 inches. The size depends on the height of the person and the size of the shoes. The skateboard decks have therefore become slightly larger in recent years.

The trucks are compact and steer very little. That makes sense because you don't want a skateboard to go all over the place when you land after a big jump. Then he should just go straight ahead. We see a lot of skateboards with soft bushing that have a lot of steering. That's because many skaters use the skateboards for cruising anyway. Because you can have so much control over a skateboard, you can also make a turn by lifting the front a little and tapping it through the turn.

The Streetsurfshop has more than 300 different skateboards in stock in the store. From completes for small beginners around 40 euros to completes of 150 euros.
