The world of skateboarding is full of different types and styles of skateboards. This can be confusing for beginners, but it's important to know which type of skateboard is best for your needs. Here are four of the most common types of skateboards and their uses:
Classic Skateboard: The classic skateboard that most people associate with skateboarding consists of a deck, four wheels and a truck. This type of skateboard is best for beginners and kids who want to learn how to skateboard. But even for advanced users, this is the most popular variant for learning and mastering many different tricks.
Longboards: The largest and longest skateboards out there. They are great for long rides and cruising around town. Their size and stability make them a good choice for beginners who want to get used to skateboarding. It's good and comfortable. Due to the size, however, you are limited to doing tricks with it.
Cruiserboards: Distinctive features of cruiserboards are that they are shorter and more compact than longboards, but still large enough to cover long distances comfortably. They are great for short to medium sized trips and are easy to handle and take with you. Our shop offers this type of skateboard in 3 sizes (26" / 28.5" / 31.125").
Freestyle Boards: Freestyle boards are smaller than most cruiser boards and are great for tricks and maneuvers. More maneuverable and lighter for their size, they're also a good choice for intermediate skateboarders who want to perform tricks and maneuvers close to the ground. From this type of skateboard we only have the corresponding freestyle deck in our range. It works very well with the usual skateboard accessories.
It's important to note that each type of skateboard has its own strengths and weaknesses. Think carefully about what kind of skateboarding you prefer before you buy a skateboard. Invest in a skateboard that suits your needs and you won't regret it.
