SKATEBOARD EQUIPMENT : EVERYTHING TO RIDE

SKATEBOARDING : A LIFESTYLE

Skateboarding is a way of getting around that was invented in the 1940s by surfers in California. Indeed, when the weather was not good, surfers could not enjoy the waves. So they had to find an alternative to feel the same ride. Developed mainly in California and Hawaii, skateboarding became increasingly popular in the United States and the first surf shops appeared in the 1960s with the very first skate contests.

Today, skateboarding has become a real lifestyle with strong values and a strong sense of freedom. Classic Popsicle, Old School or Modern, the different shapes of skateboard offered today show the craze around this culture present everywhere in the world.

CHOOSING YOUR SKATEBOARD

Since its popularization, skateboarding has not stopped evolving by diversifying the practices and the styles of boards. The so-called "traditional" board has a grip and wheels and is about 80 cm long. The Cruiser is a mini-skateboard ideal for walking around town. Very easy to handle, it allows you to move quickly but without grip, be careful when going downhill! The Longboard appeared in the 70's and is a longer board than a classic skateboard. Its surf-inspired shape makes it possible to reproduce the movements on the waves and to reach good speed peaks. You can also enjoy great carving sessions with this versatile freeride board.

From the springboard to the ramp, the skatepark is composed of modules offering unique and intense experiences of urban sliding. To ride these artificial constructions representing urban structures, it is better to have the right equipment!
