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.
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.
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.
The six panel hat is a classic and still holds strong today even though five panel hats are more common. Who would have ever thought the six panel would have been dethroned as the champ of headwear that had a good solid two decade run in skateboarding?
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.
Do you remember when fitted hats and six panels got knocked off everyone's heads by the big five panel trend a few years ago? I think it was the early days of Odd Future and Tyler that really helped kick off the change in domepiece attire. These days, five panel hats still run strong.
