Skateboard Buying Advice
Our advice for new buyers
If you have a question is not shown on this page feel free to contact our support team using the contact page form or calling us directly on 0343 289 2723 and we'll be happy to answer any of your questions before you buy your skateboard!
We have tried to come up with all the questions we get asked on a regular basis to help everyone. We have used a bullet point list to keep things simple. This list is updated occasionally.
Who are your skateboards suitable for?
Our skateboards are designed to take the weight and stance of smaller riders and are perfect for kids. Though we do suggest that your children should be over five years of age before they ride and that you supervise them to make sure they stay safe.
Do I need to assemble my skateboard?
Not at all. Your skateboard will come to you fully constructed, so all you have to do is learn how to ride.
Are there different types of boards?
We have fantastic skateboards available in either a 31” or 40” size. Each skateboard comes with a different design, so there’s one available for every taste, from incredible slim designs to exotic island print. Check out the full range to pick the right board for you.
Where can my child ride their skateboard?
We would suggest that any new skateboarder first learns how to steady themselves on a soft surface such as a carpet or patch of grass. Once they are accustomed to how they stand on the board, they can try it out on a harder surface, such as the pavement at your local park.
Do you need protection to ride?
Definitely! As with any activity of this kind, it’s wise to invest in some fantastic safety gear up front. A helmet and some soft pads for your knees and elbows are basic essentials, and we stock them right here on our site. So fun and safety really can go hand in hand.
