Skateboard Buying Guide - Buy the Right Skateboard for You
Warehouse Skateboards offers a large selection of skateboard parts and accessories. That's all well and good if you know what you want, but what if you're a beginner or a traditionalist who's been riding the same setup forever? You might need a little help! We'll walk you through everything you need to know to make the right decisions, whether you want to build a complete skateboard, or are just picking up some pieces to improve your current ride.
The first thing you want to consider when buying a skateboard is what kind of skateboarding you'll be doing. Shortboards (which typically measure 28" to 32") are an awesome choice if you're skating streets, pools, ramp or skate parks, doing tricks, cruising, or vert skateboarding. In addition to length, key factors such as width, shape, concave, and wheel durometer all impact what type of skateboarding you can do. For information on cruisers or longboard skateboards, check out How To Buy A Longboard.
Skateboards are built using just a few key parts, and there are optional components you can add to personalize your board even further. Warehouse Skateboard carries everything you need to custom build your board exactly how you want it, and we also sell pre-assembled skateboard completes.
About skateboard completes
If you're new to skateboarding or don't want to build a custom skateboard, pre-assembled skateboard completes are a great option. Warehouse Skateboards has fully built skateboards for sale, which are constructed from the same quality parts that we sell individually.
