Isn't it funny how the mainstream always has a beanie in mind when they think of the classic skateboarder stereotype? The beanie is here to stay in skateboarding as we've been running them since the dawn on skateboard time. These days, they're getting a little crazy with pom poms and extra large graphics, too.
Those lowly nuts and bolts, aka Hardware, have had quite a decorated history in skateboarding. Some of the biggest companies in the industry started out as hardware and now have their owners flying to the skateboard shindig in private jets.
Reissue boards are not just remakes and reissues of old shapes and graphics, they're reissues of your youth, skateboarding being the fountain of that youth. Go straight back to childhood with our selection of reissue boards that seem to be flying off the shelves of every skate shop out there now that nostalgia is at an all time high with so many 40 year old plus skateboarders out there.
My earliest memories of the bucket hat taking over skateboard headwear was when Earl Sweatshirt started to run them constantly in the early days of Odd Future. These days, everyone has to have one in their headwear lineup.
We've been skating for a long time here at The Boardr, so we find it hard to believe that some kids don't even realize shapes are old school, not a new thing started by Welcome Skateboards. Crazy shapes came first, then evolved to the classic popsicle stick, and now we're all in love with shapes again like a high school reunion.
Some of the earliest skateboarders are getting a little old, us included, and we love our throwback old school stuff. Check the 'Reissue Boards' category for decks. In this group, we have all the other throwback stuff like classic graphics and other skate stuff that will make you feel like a kid again despite what your knees are telling you.
Cruiser boards usually vary in shape from traditional street boards and can vary widely in width, but generally are shorter than about 34 inches. Cruiser completes come with softer wheels, too. Softer wheels are an easier ride. Cruiser boards are generally not for doing tricks. They're transportation like longboards, but don't have the uncool factor that longboards got stuck with from the street skaters.
