Any big chain for skateboarding products can tell you which brands are popular, but the employees there aren’t going to be enthusiasts with plenty of knowledge. They can tell you that Santa Cruz skateboards are consistently praised, but they can’t tell you what makes them stand out amongst other top brands. They won’t have the time or interest in helping you find a board you’ll really be satisfied with; after all, when it comes to skateboarding, it’s about more than finding a board or deck or piece of clothing that works. You’re looking for the right art, the right aesthetic, the right style to match the way you want to be seen and recognized in the community. An oversized chain just looking to make sales quotas can’t give you that.
We at Skate Connection want to operate differently. Whether you’re a seasoned skater of many years or just coming to the sport, we want to offer you not just the best choices but all the best information to go along with them. Our online store is easy to navigate, allowing you to filter for specific brands and see what those brands are all about. Newcomers have all the brand basics right here to see what suits them best, and veterans looking for a change can see what they may or may not want. If you’re looking for a mix of friendly, knowledgeable, and varied, you won’t find better than Skate Connection.
Even newcomers to skateboarding might already know about Santa Cruz; after all, they’re considered one of the founding brands of modern skateboarding and have been around since 1973. Your classic Santa Cruz is all about pop—bright colours, flashy and bizarre designs, and a smooth-looking surface that makes the art look just a little out of this world. You may have already seen their iconic Screaming Hand design. The Hand has endured in Skateboarding for representing much of what a skateboarding lifestyle is: vivid, intensely physical, energetic, expressive, and just a little morbid.
As for the technical side of their boards, Santa Cruz decks, wheels, and trucks are renowned for versatility and strength. Santa Cruz completes have medium-texture bushings that are very forgiving to beginners and intermediates, meaning the wheels will turn smoothly without being too difficult to guide. More experienced skaters might enjoy Santa Cruz longboards, which are frequently rated as some of the best for cruising, downhill, or racing. These longboards can come in a couple of different styles depending on your dimensions and your preferred skating type. If you’d like to learn more about whether to choose Pintail or Drop Through boards, for instance, we’re more than happy to help by explaining and advising! Just give us a call or come see us at one of our stores.
It shouldn’t be complicated or intimidating to get some details while shopping for a skateboard. The sport itself can be crazy enough without making the gearing up tough too. That’s why Skate Connection looks to make it easy for you. If you’d like to make an enquiry, you can find our “Contact Us” link at the bottom of this page.
