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.
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.
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?
We all know someone who just looks funny wearing a hat or anything on their head for that matter. How does it get to that point? It's from not wearing hats and a variety of them often enough. We got you right here.
If you're new to skateboarding, bearings are what goes inside your wheels to make them roll. Rolling obviously is important in skateboarding, so bearing choices take some thought. We've got the low price to the high end here for you.
Santa Cruz and their parent company NHS recently celebrated their 40th Anniversary of making top quality skateboards. 40???!! Wow, skateboarding isn't even that much older than that. They've seen wheels, boards, and skateboard fashion trends go from big to tall to small to it all. Their recent collaboration with Star Wars got everyone hyped. Congrats on 40 years, NHS and thanks for being down to have Santa Cruz stuff in The Boardr Store.
Skateboarders wear out different parts of the board at different paces, the wooden deck part of the skateboard itself generally being the most often replaced. Replace your wood here with cruisers to street boards to longboards.
