Skate Connection has the largest range of skateboard, scooter and skating equipment in Australia. We have seven locations across the country and an online store for those who can’t make it in. Our shop is family friendly and aims to offer professional advice and guidance. We’ve always worked to make this space welcoming and less intimidating than other skateboard stores, making us your best option for old school skateboards.
There’s a big difference between modern skateboards and the old models. One of these is the size; with newer skateboards being much shorter than old school ones. This means new school is excellent for tricks, and old school is more stable. While newer skateboards have a concave, the old school boards are flat, or at most have a mild concave. This gives your feet more space to move, making it easier to show off and boardwalk. These different boards also have different purposes and are suited for different things.
With all the options that are out there, it can be hard to figure out what kind of board you should get. Shortboards, longboards, old school boards, which one’s the perfect fit for you? The most important thing to take into consideration here is what you plan to do with your skateboard, as they’re all best suited for different things. Do you want to use it for transportation and cruising around? You might want a cruiser board or longboard. If you want to do tricks, try a shortboard. But most skaters want to be able to do both. If you’re one of them, and you don’t want to or can’t invest in two boards right now, an old school skateboard is the best of both worlds. Another difference is that modern boards are good for the street, while old school ones are best in ramps and skate pools but can also be used for cruising. All this means they’re also good for beginners who haven’t figured out what they want to do with their skateboarding yet.
When it comes to skateboards, you’ll find no other place in Australia with more options than Skate Connection. Whatever it is you’re looking for, you’ll be able to find it here.
