What up Skateboarders!
Once I again I would like to share another beginner guide on the different types of skateboards. There is a huge stock of skateboards out there and chances that beginners can feel confused about choosing one.
Don’t worry! I will guide you through all of the common skateboard types and their unique features. Just keep in mind that the best skateboard is the one can match with your style and purpose.
Let’s jump into it now!
1. Mini / small skateboards:
As the name might give out hints to you, these skateboards are great for young children and kids. The decks are usually from 6.5 inches to 7 inches in width, and the length can be varied.
What is great about these skateboards that they are easy for the kids to learn. The deck can be either wood or plastic. Other components such as bearings and trucks are either aluminum or steel.
The special features of this type are greater durability, ultra-lightweight and colorful. As these skateboards are designed for children, many manufacturers really fine tune these top features to ensure both safety and variety.
You can come across these brands as they offer lots of diverse skateboards such as Penny, Xtreme Free, Rimable, Merkapa Skateboards, and more. The designs of these brands are beautiful and attractive to the children’s eyes.
The main purpose here is to help small kids starting to learn about skateboarding. Giving them lots of fun, while withstanding lots of damage and external forces. Since certain kids can really misbehave with their skateboards, the plastic and tough wooden deck are necessary.
