If there’s one thing everyone knows about skateboarding, it’s that it embraces disorder. Skaters love a good mess, a sweaty and sometimes even bloody day trying to nail that one rail grind, nosegrind, or hardflip. Street skating has quickly become today’s favourite form of skateboarding, and that means skaters more than ever thrive on using locations that weren’t meant to be skated on as their personal challenges. If there’s a good set of stairs, a long, smooth rail, or a perfectly elevated ledge or ramp, it’s yours for the taking. If there’s a street you want to race down and really test your balance against, it’s just a matter of finding the proper time and place. That’s how the counterculture has been since the old school days: you make a place for yourself even if it’s messy, rebellious, and a little mad.
If you want to get your advice and merchandise at a store that really understands all that, you’re looking for us, and you’ve just found us. At Skate Connection, we make it our priority to give you any helpful, detailed answers you ask for alongside anything you purchase. Our selection of skateboards, roller skates, and scooters is bigger than anything else in the country, but we still make sure we don’t get the disinterested attitude of those massive chain sellers. In other words, whether you’re a newcomer or a veteran in vert, street, or filming skateboarding, you’ll find that we’re your finest resource in Australia.
If you were a skater around the late 1990s, you might have known Darkstar as a skateboard wheels company, and a pretty good one at that. Nowadays, Darkstar also has decks and complete boards for sale as well, and they have amassed a dedicated fanbase and a crazy roster of pros. They advertise themselves perhaps more straightforwardly than any other skateboard company, with their iconic knight logo perfectly summarizing their signature style. If you haven’t seen a Darkstar board in person before, it’s like watching someone skate on an old heavy metal album. Many of their classic designs feature the jagged patterns and comic book super proportions we’ve come to associate with gritty metal bands. If that’s not your style, though, Darkstar also releases lines like their Felix the Cat series, which features a much brighter and more cartoonish look.
If you’re a beginner, a Darkstar complete skateboard will be perfect for you. If this is your tenth skateboard, Darkstar will still be perfect for you. That’s their flexibility—they began with just wheels, but they’ve become a top-notch brand for other parts of the board too. And if you’re not sure where to start beyond the brand, that’s where we come in! Skate Connection can advise you on what dimensions you might prefer for your deck or complete based on your height and leg length.
