When you’re starting out as a skateboarder you don’t really give a whole lot of consideration to anything outside of being able to stand on the board and propel yourself forward. With time and practice, however, you start to become more adjusted to the performance of your board and when those wobbles become a little too persistent and no matter how much you practice your speed seems to be getting slower, there is no option but to take out the toolkit and start looking at the parts.
Skateboard bearings are of course integral to the performance and a little wear and tear, or just a lack of care and continued maintenance can grind your skating to a halt.
Lucky for you here at SkateConnection.com.au we have all the parts and know-how you might need when the time comes to really dig into that board and make a few adjustments. We are based in Queensland but are widely regarded as Australia’s number one skate shop, offering a comprehensive list of goods and brands that is unrivalled.
Some riders know exactly what they want but others are less certain. As such, it is worth commenting on the benefits both the longboard and traditional skateboard offer.
A skateboard is curved at both ends to allow riders to execute tricks. They are smaller than longboards making them portable and easy to store. They are usually affordable and a low-cost entry point into the skate world. You are drawn to skateboarding for a reason, so it goes without saying that you understand that in learning how to ride you can expect those comfy shoes you just bought to get scuffed up before long, which is particularly true for skateboarders.
The added benefit of a skateboard is that in time you can assemble your own. The parts are easily accessible and so if you want to be creative you can Frankenstein your own monster and shred up the streets or parks in style.
Longboards come in a variety of sizes and styles. They are heavier and more cumbersome where storage and carrying are concerned, but those minor things aside, they are better suited to cruising and commuting. They are also much easier to balance and adults find that the broader board makes for a more manageable ride, particularly for those with big shoes. A longboard will typically set you back a bit more than a skateboard, but if you’re committed to getting one and love the way they ride, what does that really matter?
If you’re in the skate community you will be familiar with a lot of the brands, both local and international, that your peers use. Rest assured you will find them in our online store, or in one of our 10 showrooms in Queensland.
