What is a Skateboard?


A skateboard is an equipment; a tool; a toy used for skateboarding. They are usually made of a specially designed maple plywood skateboard deck with a polyurethane coating for smoothness and durability and skateboard wheels attached to the underside by a pair of skateboard trucks.

The skateboarder moves it by pushing with one foot with the other foot balanced on the board, or by pumping one's legs on land, in a bowl or half pipe. It can be used also by simply standing on the skateboard deck while on a downward slope and allowing gravity to propel the board and rider.  

How much does it cost for a skateboard?

On average, a typical complete skateboard can cost anywhere between 4000-7500 pesos, depending on the quality of the skateboard and customizations. For instance, you can save a lot of money simply by purchasing blank decks; the quality of this board is as good as a printed one.

Should you buy a cheap skateboard from Lazada or Shopee?

For me, I don't recommend them. These skateboards are bad because they use cheap material. They are fine to use a couple of times but they will wear soon. It's a lot harder to learn skateboarding using these skateboards. I'd rather buy a used skateboard than buying cheap and non durable skateboards.

Do you need a pair of skateboard shoes to skate?

Technically, no. You can skate in any shoe, but it's going to make skating a little more difficult than skateboarding in a pair of skateboard shoes from Vans', DC's, Etenies, Nike SB's, Emerica's, Supra's, Lakai's, Globe's, ES' and others. Skateboarding shoes are made to help you skate better. They have flat, grippy, and usually extra wide cup soles to help you hold onto your skateboard better.
