What is the difference between skateboards made of different materials?

For the most part, board shape refers to the width, the concave, and the taper. A wider board with a mellow concave and little taper is preferable for skating drops, parks, ramps, vert, and bowls. A narrower board with a deep concave that tapers at the tail is often preferred for technical street skating.

The profile or shape of the wheel’s edge can impact the grip, weight, and how the wheel locks into grinds. A more rounded edge will make the wheel slide more easily. A sharper edge gives the wheel more grip and can help you lock into grinds better without slipping out of place.

“Hey, there are many options for foot placement, etc. You have to find one that works well for you. Try a few variations. One option you could try is to set your front foot with your big toe “hanging off” the front side of your deck. This creates tension and flips the board very well when kicking your front foot out the heelflip way. Good luck!”

Three main types of skateboard wheels are fun and functional for different types of riding. Watch the video and read below to decide whether park/street, cruiser, or longboard wheels are the right fit for you.

Wheel manufacturers make a whole range of different colored wheels. They have solid, transparent, translucent and swirling colors, and many people love them. Are they any good? Well, it’s up to you and what you like. Puritans will say they are not so good and stick to white and natural colored wheels. With white wheels, some are colored with a white pigment to give them that crisp appearance. Most natural urethane has a milky, slightly off-white appearance. Natural wheels will often turn yellowish brown after being exposed to light over time.

Throughout the history of skateboarding, decks have gone through many phases of development and changes. Today there are decks suited especially for particular terrains, with specific widths, lengths, shapes, and unique construction technology.

The longboard, a common variant of the skateboard, is used for higher speed and rough surface boarding, and they are much more expensive. “Old school” boards (those made in the 1970s–80s or modern boards that mimic their shape) are generally wider and often have only one kicktail. Variants of the 1970s often have little or no concavity.
