At some point in our lives, we all have wanted to go skating. The thought of young teenagers performing neat tricks and stunts always gives us a flashback of teenage days. Owning a skateboard can mean two things either for leisure or for transportation purposes and that is why it is very important to know what types of decathlon skateboards are available.
Clay and wooden wheels were used in the earlier days when the concept of a skateboard was new, but over the time the material in which the wheels are available are plastic, rubber, silicon, etc with a specific purpose each.
Skateboard Boards: Classic Popsicle
Initially, when skating was a very big fad, classic popsicle skateboards were the most common type which was used but even over the years as newer and many skateboards came into the picture, this skateboard is still people’s most loved choice. Although classic popsicle skateboards comes in different deck size which is usually confusing to many new users. Undoubtedly these boards are the best to perform tricks and stunts in the backyard or the park.
Starting skating from any age means its perfect for a kid, teen or adult to start with a classic popsicle skateboard to learn on and dream of becoming a pro skater.
To identify the type of board as a cruiser board we can easily look at the wheels and point it out. The most important point regarding the cruiser board is that any board can be turned into this one simply by changing the wheels into softer ones. The point of bigger and softer wheels is not only to have fun but only to commute quicker between locations.
We already know what cruiser boards are from the above points, the mini cruiser is exactly as described, the same size as a mini-board but with softer and wider wheels. Stunts are very difficult to perform on this board as they are mainly meant for cruising. The small size makes it really convenient for transportation purposes but racing downhill or freeriding is near to impossible with mini cruisers.
Longboards obviously have longer boards but are also very wide and long compared to cruiser boards. These boards are more reliable than others and they come with a soft wheel. These boards are a very good fit for beginners as they have a very balanced structure which makes them easier to ride. Unlike cruisers, these are good for downhill racing as well as free riding. Tricks and stunts can very easily be implemented using longboards.
Downhill skateboards are made for professional use and are designed for those people travelling long distances. This skateboard is made in such a way which helps the rider reach very high speeds with any wobbling. We can witness many professional skaters who can drift and turn easily, this can be credited to the enhanced balancing techniques implemented on the board when it was made.
